      You don't need this module. You never use it.
      *** good to know

      You should include $! in your error message. THAT will tell you why you
      can't create the file.
      *** THANK YOU soo much! I didn't know of $! and it is so helpful

      Unnecessary to unlock the file. And you should be using Fcntl.pm
      *** I have been looking at Fcntl.pm, but I don't understand it. I'm very
      knew to mods and functions - I learn what I need for the project at hand
      and don't always get a full grasp or even get the best way to go about it.
      My errors are telling me it won't set up the file because a file or
      directory doesn't exist. When I use Fcntl.pm or Apache::File or even open
      should I be using relative or absolute paths? Which is easier for a
      newbie? Also, if I don't know much C, should I use Fcntl or Apache::File?
