in reply to Reading a File by Line then Analyzing each Line

I suggest using a hash instead of plain variables:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %questions; my $cur; while (<DATA>) { $cur = $1 if /^\d+\.\s*(.*)$/; $questions{$cur}->{selected} = $1 if $cur and /^[A-Z]+\.\s*(.*)\s+ +\*$/; s/\s*\*\s*$//; push @{$questions{$cur}->{answers}}, $1 if $cur and /^[A-Z]+\.\s*( +.*)\s*$/; } print Dumper \%questions; __DATA__ 1. What is my name? A. Rooney * B. Gerrard C. Ronaldo D. Ronaldinho 2. Who's your bet in the coming World Cup? A. Brazil * B. Germany C. England D. Cameroon

[perldigious]: I don't miss having to drive up and down in elevation on roads that are iced over, I white knuckled gripping the steering wheel every time I had to where I used to live.
[perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
