[sf-perl] Hanging with the diamond operator?

Thank you very much for your reply.  The file is called from a couple
different scripts in one of the the following ways:

with a file (in which case a file is submitted that needs to be
checked for "epsf[". In these cases the sub sometimes hangs

&delimit($T, $C, $R, $S, $B, $file);

or w/o a file so the scalar $B will be the $body that winds up in the
delimited file.  In these cases while(<>) is never executed and the
program never hangs.

&delimit($T, $C, $R, $S, $B);

It is trimmed down significantly chiefly because it is on a private
network and it's a lot to retype.  The only thing that happens after
the while loop is that a new file is created containing delimiters in
which the scalar $body is one of the delimited fields.  The file is
then rsynced to another local machine.

Thanks for the help thus far.
