( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
You should include the $! variable in the error message so you know why it failed to open:

There's no need to add that to every statement for a quick script unless you do expect to run on that error often. You can figure out the error code after the fact as perl's die statement helpfully sets the exit code to $! % 256 || 1, so eg. if you print the exit code from the shell after you get this error message and you find that it's 2 you can be sure the error was ENOENT (No such file or directory). (The higher error codes are platform-dependent, but you can still find out the strerror message for them with eg. perl -we 'die($!=2)')

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
