|True, although I suspect that for Mark these don't matter too much, as

|So Mark, if you're using <STDIN>, I assume you use your script as
|follows (correct me if I'm wrong):
|   cat input_file | script.pl
|If you switch to using <>, then you could still use it the same way,
|but a better way (IMHO) is now possible:
|  script.pl input_file
