in reply to File Input and Output

running this code: open(FILE, "data.txt"); #opens data.txt in read-mode while(<FILE>){ #reads line by line from FILE which is the filehandle for data.txt chomp; print "Saw $_ in data.txt\n"; #shows you what we have read } close FILE; #close the file. results in: # perl test1 syntax error at test1 line 5, near "<" syntax error at test1 line 5, near ">" Execution of test1 aborted due to compilation errors.
