Hi,

attached patch adds a few words of warning perlop and perlrun, telling
people that <> doesn't open files from @ARGV, but passes them to open()
instead.

Currently this is only documented very indirectly, which might cause
unpleasant surprises.

I don't know if a word of warning should go into perlsec as well, and if
yes, in which section.

Cheers,
Moritz
