It's because "while (<>) { readline }" didn't use to be supported until
5.10, and he's on 5.8.

    $ seq 1 4 | ./miniperl -we 'print $]; while (<>) { chomp; print "$.: $_ -> " . readline }; print "\n"'
    readline() on unopened filehandle 1: 1 ->  at -e line 1.
    Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at -e line 1.
    readline() on unopened filehandle 2: 2 ->  at -e line 1.
    readline() on unopened filehandle 3: 3 ->  at -e line 1.
    readline() on unopened filehandle 4: 4 ->  at -e line 1.
    5.009004
    $ seq 1 4 | perl -we 'print $]; while (<>) { chomp; print "$.: $_ -> " . readline }; print "\n"'
    5.0280011: 1 -> 2
    3: 3 -> 4
