There's more than one way to do things

Windows 7 64-bit perl v5.12.3 I open the file using...

open(IN, $nameoffile) or die "Can't open $!\n";

I have not seen binmode so I am definitely not using that. I have my .pl file on a classified network not connected to the internet so I would have to retype the entire thing. I am almost positive it is not my code though since I can repeat the exact same time thousands of times before this issue pops up at some random point.

EDIT: Looking at binmode, before I open the file, should it be...

binmode STDIN, ":bytes"; open(IN, $nameoffile) or die "Can't open $!\n";

Or should it be...

binmode IN, ":bytes"; open(IN, $nameoffile) or die "Can't open $!\n";

EDITEDIT: I just tried including binmode and the behavior didn't change whatsoever, unless both of my examples above are wrong. As far as I can tell these files contains a single massive block of hex data so I don't think I have to worry about any newlines.

  • 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).
