    Get rid of system("rm -rf $file.tmp") # remove temp file
    Why? Is it because that's better said as unlink "$file.tmp" or warn "Couldn't remove $file.tmp: $!"? Or is it because you don't want to remove the temp file? As with all of this stuff, you're welcome to implement the author's idea in any way that you wish on your own system


      Yes better written as unlink (portability, safety). and always some foolish person reuse -recursive and accidentally deletes all his files.
        You know, I was a C coder, so I still use a C-like syntax and some C-like code in my perl scripts. I'll get rid of that soon, anyway.
