I think we have got ahead of ourselve here. looking at the code more closely __END__ will only keep the file open if !PL_in_eval which is only true for the script perl is called with. Also Package::DATA is only set with __DATA__. __END__ will ALWAYS set main::DATA So __END__ in packages should not be keeping the filehandle open so I think that what happens now is the right thing todo. so what was the problem again ? -- Since you're clearly mad as a mongoose, I'll bid you good-day. -- Edmund to Captain Rum : Black Adder II "Potato"
