Went running, showered, then hung out with rivulet... we did a whole lot of nothing, highlights being pool, pizza, and beer, which in retrospect sounds like more than nothing, so hooray.
More BML mod_perl-ing afterwards. Kickin' some ass.
A little known feature of Perl is that when lexically defined variables go out of scope, any indirect filehandle stored in them is automatically closed. So, in fact, there's really no reason to perform an explicit close() on the filehandles in the two preceding examples unless you want to test the close operation's return value.I found them stating that humorous, given that Linux's close() always returns true.
