As you've since discovered, a fix to that script introduced a dependency
on Perl 5.6.0 features.  I've now added a require statement to the
beginning of the script so that you'll get a better error message.  (I
thought about trying to backport to Perl 5.005, but I'm not sure that it's
worth it; the three-argument form of open is very natural for what that
script is doing.)
