( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
#/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; #much other stuff.... #initializations etc.... foreach $file (@list_of_filenames){ open(THISFILE,'< $file') or warn "ERROR: Can't open $file!\n";#for + this application fail to open is not fatal.. binmode(THISFILE); $data = Digest::MD5->new->addfile(*THISFILE)->hexdigest; return unless ($data); #...process $data..... }
Gee, why does every file have the same digest?....
Maybe because open tries to open a file NAMED: " < $file " ?
I keep tripping on the q() vs qq() vs qw() vs qx()

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.
