When you wrote this:

    CCS=`perl -e 'local $/=undef; open FILE, $ENV{'PATCHTMP'};...

which one of the following did you mean to feed Perl?

 (1) open FILE, $ENV{'PATCHTMP'};
 (2) open FILE, $ENV{PATCHTMP};

The patch text makes it look as if you wanted to do (1), but what is
fed to perl is (2), as Johannes points out.


    CCS=`perl -e 'local $/=undef; open FILE, $ENV{PATCHTMP};...

would have been more natural if you really meant to do (2), don't
you think?  So what you wrote is at least misleading.

But I think I agree with Johannes's rewrite of the loop, so this may
be a moot point.
