in reply to using split on a file

Ok, this is what worked for me (adapted to your code a little). I was using CGI.pm and when I just undefined $/ it really screwed some stuff up.

my $OldNewLine = $/; $/ = undef; open( FILE, "file" ); my @List = split( /\n%{5}\n/, <FILE> ); close (FILE); $/ = $OldNewLine;
Update: Ignore the above code look at the reply below this.

    Or, you can use a block. It's neater.

    my @List=(); { local $/ = undef; open( FILE, "file" ); @List = split( /\n%{5}\n/, <FILE> ); close (FILE); } # $/ is back to what it used to be!
