What do you get if you capture?

if( $line =~ /^mail:\s+([\S]+)$/ ) { my $mail = $1; print "mail=$mail\n"; }

    I get mail=asdf.com ? ?

      Add the following to your script:

      use Data::Dumper;

      ...and then on the line immediately preceding your "for" loop, add, "print Dumper \@array;".

      There might be something broken in your input data, and that would be a simple means of identifying (or eliminating) it as a problem.

        Done and here is a sample of what I got back:
        ', 'sn: ThisUser ', 'mail: ThisUser@somewhere.com ', 'cn: This User ', 'uid: MyUID
        Now what?
