in thread While Loops

I would like to read the 1st 100 records from the text file, print them, and read the next 100 and print them, etc until I run out of record in the text file

    With the improved spec, you'd want something more like:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @data=(); my $file='c:\text.txt'; open my $fh,"<", $file or die "$file: $!"; while (my $line = <$fh>){ push @data, $line; if (@data == 100) { print @data; @data = (); } } print @data;

    #11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @data=(); my $file='c:\text.txt'; my $count=0; open FILE,"< $file" or die "$file: $!"; while (my $line =<FILE> ){ chomp $line; push @data,[split /\t/,$line]; $count++; next if $count < 99; while ($#data >= 0 ) { printf "%s\n",join(",",shift @data); } $count = 0; }
    So.. how much more of your homework do you need me to do?

    we're really guessing at what you are trying to do, so in that spirit maybe here's a real life example that has enough stuff in it to be useful on a few fronts...
