in reply to parse problem

The first argument to split() needs to be a regular expression matching the string that delimits the fields in your data. In your case, the fields in your line are separated by a '|', so the code could look like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $data = 'gi|12345678|ref|NP_001234.1|'; my @data = split /\|/, $data; my $number = $data[1];
Or more concisely:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $data = 'gi|12345678|ref|NP_001234.1|'; my $number = (split(/\|/, $data))[1];
