  • Do we want to make a list?

    1) What is FILE supposed to stringify to? It looks like a filehandle, but that won't give the filename. I'll be generous and assume we have "use constant FILE=>'filename.zip'" in there somewhere.

    2) Even assuming FILE stringifies, why sprintf?

    3) Locking a pipe? No other process can compete for access. Mistaken attempt to lock the underlying file, or very strange attempt at inter-thread locking?

    I really don't want to see the rest of that code.
