in reply to Parsing for [] in a file

I even tried this and I see no output for this though

Are you sure that File2 still contains the data that you think it does?

If you ran the first version of your code on it, the line:

open FILE2, ">$f2" or die "Could not open file: $! \n";

opens a file for writing, not reading. In other words, it clobbers any existing data in the file...

    Apologize. Dint meant to have a ">$f2". Had it corrected before posting it. Thanks for the reply.
