In my cgi scripts, I use code like
###################
print<<HTML;
blah,blah
HTML
####################
to print to a web page.

Is it possible to use similar code to write to a file.??

Rather than
print...
print...
over and over  again.
Thanks in advance,
Jim

Yeah, just use:

print FILEHANDLE <<ENDLABEL;
blah
blah2
ENDLABEL

That should do it.

sure you can do that.

lets say you want to write to a file (/tmp/out.txt)

open(tmp, ">/tmp/out.txt") || die $!;

## You can change the currently selected filehandle with the select function.
## This function takes a single filehandle (or a scalar
## variable containing the name of a filehandle) as an argument. Once the ## currently selected filehandle is changed, it affects all
## future operations that depend on the currently selected filehandle.

select (tmp);

print<<HTML;
blah,blah
HTML
close(tmp);

## NOTE: The select operation is sticky; once you've selected a new handle, ## it stays in effect until the next select.
select (STDOUT);
