I am writing a script that among other things edits a file. The file can be in one of two places (directories) so if the first open does not work I want it to try the open of the file in the alternative directory. I know how to do open(F, "</blah/blah") || die or open(F, "</lbal") || warn; but I don't want the program to die but to try another directory. Is there a way to do open() conditionals or do I need to use readdir first to see if the file exists?
