Re: Source for the open perl function
In 5.8 and 5.10, the actual open function is pp_open in pp_sys.c, but
the bulk of the work is done by Perl_do_openn in doio.c. Note that
understanding either of these functions will require a working knowledge
of the perl5 internals: the perl source makes heavy use of macros, which
often do things you weren't entirely expecting.
