This may be more appropriate for the ActiveState folks, so I will send
this to them as well, when I find an appropriate email address.

Running Perl5.005_03, build 517 on a Windows 95 box, I get an error when
running the following code​:

  d​:\my_perl>perl -Mstrict
  open FH, "+<file" or die "cannot open file​: $!";
  truncate FH, 0;
  close FH;

  Bareword "FH" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at - line 2.
  Execution of - aborted due to compilation errors.

I don't know what to make of that, other than it being a bug. The code
works perfectly fine in Perl 5.005_02 on the Unix box I'm currently on.
