Do you know where your variables are?

You need to read the data into another variable and feed it instead of the file name. You can do this in a number of ways, including read and open / <INP> / close and so on, and this may not be the most efficient method due to my lack of experience, but here we go:
my $scratchtps="/usr/local/log/sctps"; sub mailme { open (INP, $scratchtps) || die $!; my $content = join('', <INP>); close(INP); my $msg = MIME::Lite->new( From => 'EDM01 <root@edm01.ohnet>', To => 'Derek Smith <>', Subject => "EDM Return Tapes", Data => $content ); $msg->send; } if ( -s $scratchtps ) { &mailme; }
Questions to ask:
1. Is there a command for reading a file into a string variable?
2. Is there a way to output an entire array without having to join first, as I'm doing above?

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.
