One more thing (and i think this is more likely to be the cause), \a and \t inside double quotes have their special meanings (see the perlop manpage for the list).

If you work on a Windows-based system, you should be able to replace the \ with / in Perl. You should be able to use, say

$::file = "C:/adder/testfile.txt"

instead. Then this should be okay.


Or you can doubly escape the \, i.e.

$::file = "C:\\adder\\testfile.txt"

Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::ProhibitTwoArgOpen(3pUser Contributed Perl DocumentatPerl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::ProhibitTwoArgOpen(3pm)

Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::ProhibitTwoArgOpen - Write "open $fh, q{<}, $filename;" instead of "open $fh, "<$filename";". AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
The three-argument form of "open" (introduced in Perl 5.6) prevents subtle bugs that occur when the filename starts with funny characters like '>' or '<'. The IO::File module provides a nice object-oriented interface to filehandles, which I think is more elegant anyway. open( $fh, '>output.txt' ); # not ok open( $fh, q{>}, 'output.txt' ); # ok use IO::File; my $fh = IO::File->new( 'output.txt', q{>} ); # even better! It's also more explicitly clear to define the input mode of the file, as in the difference between these two: open( $fh, 'foo.txt' ); # BAD: Reader must think what default mode is open( $fh, '<', 'foo.txt' ); # GOOD: Reader can see open mode This policy will not complain if the file explicitly states that it is compatible with a version of perl prior to 5.6 via an include statement, e.g. by having "require 5.005" in it. CONFIGURATION
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options. NOTES
There are two cases in which you are forced to use the two-argument form of open. When re-opening STDIN, STDOUT, or STDERR, and when doing a safe pipe open, as described in perlipc. SEE ALSO
