in reply to problems with split

The problem with your code is that the print statement is outside of the foreach loop (its outside of the curly braces which define the extent of the loop). To get it to print the second field on each line, this statement should be inside the loop so that it gets called for each line.

# type value value2 # 503 1093 4395 # load the data @file = <FILE>; # or use a while (defined(my $line = <FILE>)) { loop for my $line (@file) { # for is the same as foreach my @fields = split (/\s+/, $line); # @file was being reused print "$fields[2]\n"; }

    can I do this without the filehandles?? cheers ;->
      You have to use a filehandle to read data in from a file, but for a simple program you can get away with using a <> to load data from the files listed in @ARGV (or STDIN if no files are given) with perl automatically opening them as needed.
      while (<>) { print (split /\s+/)[2], "\n"; }
