Nice :-)

Will do! Some of my comments are a bit on the pedantic side, so you
choose yourself which ones you want to heed!

'use strict' and 'use warnings' is recommended. You have "my" on the
variables anyway (which is a good thing!).

I personally prefer to put '<', $filename here instead of mashing them
together as one string. I don't know if it really matters.

If you want to compile with strict/warnings here, you should replace
FILE with "my $fh" here

...and use <$fh> here.

The & should be gone (see perldoc -q 'calling a function')

The parentheses are not needed for most of the built-in functions.

What seems to be the purpose of this, also what's up with the funny name? :-D

> +sub check_include()

The parentheses should be gone. This has something to do with
prototypes and should normally not be used.

This could also be written as if (my($inc) = $line =~ ...), and you
bypass the use of $1, which is often error-prone... but it's correct
in this case and is simply a matter of taste.

May use unless() instead of if(!()) here. But that's just perl pedantry.

More or less the same comments would apply to the next script as well.

...

Use of $1 instead of \1 is recommended, see perldoc perlre ("Warning
on \1 vs $1").
