"Resetting" a file handleby DeusVult (Scribe)
|on Feb 01, 2001 at 23:33 UTC||Need Help??|
DeusVult has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Is there some way to "reset" a file handle? If, for example, I open a file with filehandle FH, and I want to do this:
Then, once I know what is in $info, I want to go back and read the file again, looking for something new depending upon what sort of information I received from this first pass.
So is there any way to set FH back to the beginning?
On another level, is there some way to do even more complicated seeking (read in line 14, jump back to line 11, etc.)? I can get by without it for this problem, but I always like to learn new tricks.
Thanks in advance.
