in reply to Cannot skip first lines in array

Assuming that @rebasefile is an array you can skip the first 10 indices in a couple of ways

foreach (@rebasefile[10..$#rebasefile]){ # skips the first ten automat +ically next if(/^\s*$/); ... }
# alternately if you don't want the overhead of creating an array slice
foreach (@rebasefile){
next for (0..9); # of course, this has overhead of its own
next if(/^\s*$/);
...
}
I haven't checked which implementation is faster. I suspect that for just 10 elements, there is a non-measurable difference. If you were ignoring 100 or more elements, the slice is probably more efficient.

Update:

Ignore the second loop. Never get smug before your first cup of coffee.

    That doesn't skip the first 10 elements, it just calls an empty loop 10 times for each element.

    i don't think next for (0..9); is working the way you want.
    however, the first foreach loop should work just fine.
