in thread export variable outside foreach

@lines being empty seems unlikely, since it was grepped out of the file. @fields may not contain four fields though (Edit: whoops, @lines, can be empty, is just can't contain empty strings unless $string1 is empty)

mitchreward, have a look at Data::Dumper. If you use Data::Dumper; and then add print Dumper \@fields; to your loop you may have more information on what is happening.

Edit: the code you provided does compile, so you have removed the error by changing it.

    I don't understand this point. Why would grep-ing the contents of the file make it likely that the  @lines array must contain something? (Or does this refer to a previous version of the posted code that was changed without citation?)

      My bad, I read "@lines is empty" correctly, but understood "@lines contains empty strings" :).
