Posted by equilibrium (equilibrium), 14 October 2004it should be the same as c . put the output into the file . thanks any way!
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 15 October 2004To clarify ...
If you use the two paratemeter form of open, the file opens by default for reading. You can prefix the file name as follows:
< open for read (default anyway)
> open for (over)write
>> open for append
| open a command as a receiving pipe
You cal also add to the end of the file name
| as a sending pipe
The 3 parameter form of open is clearer, and recommended if you're using a recent version of Perl and are sure you won't want to run your code on something older
