in reply to Don't get the output as expect.

The problem with your script is that you are using a single if-elsif-else conditional when you probably need to have a separate conditional for each question or nested ifs (as long as it doesn't get complicated and deep). Also, please use strict;.

    Thanks for suggestion I have modified the code
    use feature ':5.10'; use strict; use warnings; print "1.Do you want to enter value for Starting account balance. (y/n +)?"; $answer= <STDIN>; chomp $answer; if ($answer eq "y") { print "Please enter SAB= "; $SAB=<STDIN>; print "$SAB"; } print "2.Do you want to enter value date (y/n)?"; $answer= <STDIN>; chomp $answer; if ($answer eq "y") { print "Please enter date= "; $Date=<STDIN>; print "$Date"; } else{ print "Exit"; }
    Now i am getting the output what i am expecting

      Glad to hear. Be sure to declare your variables with my so that everything will run when you have use strict; in effect.

      Also, you may want to change this:

      if ($answer eq "y")

      to something like this:

      if ( $answer =~ /^y/i )

      That way, it will match Y y Ya yes yup Yar, etc. and let you remove two lines of code since you will no longer need to chomp $answer;.
