    Nice use of an obscure variable (the obfuscator in me salutes you), but you'd better hope that the file is at least 22 lines long, or you'll be waiting quite a while for your data :-)
                   s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print
      Point taken (although I don't think of $. as particularly obscure.) Slight modification:
      1 while <DATA> and $. < 21;
