perlopentut - tutorial on opening things in Perl


Perl has two simple, built-in ways to open files: the shell way for convenience, and the C way for precision. The choice is yours.


The open and sysopen function in perlfunc(1); the standard open(2), dup(2), fopen(3), and fdopen(3) manpages; the POSIX documentation.
