According to Henrik Edlund:
There is no need, I believe, to use the sysopen function as someone
else suggested earlier.

But sysopen() is a simpler approach that eliminates all such concerns,
and adds robustness.  Simply prepending "< " is not enough to work in
the presence of, say, filenames that begin with whitespace.

PS: I added sysopen() to Perl 5.4.  :-)
