Hi Kenosis,

thanks again for your support.

Of course, you are right reminding me to use lexical variables for file handles. I changed that and added 'use strict;', this time without getting errors like "requires explicit package name".

The chomp command was intended to cut a newline, if there should be a field including one (it doesn't make a difference, so I deleted it).

I can't follow you, implementing the matching command here. If I understand it correctly, it compares the strings given in a row with a certain pattern? What I want to achieve is, to get the string (ID) of the first field of the first coloumn and use it as a regex for matching the fh of read_dir. Than get the second string of the first coloumn etc. (all IDs are listed in the first coloum only).

The problem why it is not working seems to be an unvisible thing at the end of each line. Following McAs hint to get the hex number of the text file: the result is that each line ends with the letter "d". This might cause the problem, because the script works with another text file, in which the lines don't end with "d".
