It seems that data file can split up to 17th elements and then the rest will start to split on the next line.

Um, no, that would be jumping to conclusions.

my @junk = split /;/, join ';', 'a'..'z', 'A'..'J'; print int(@junk),"\n"; print "@junk\n"; print "$_=$junk[$_] " for 0,1,10,20,33,34,-1; __END__ 36 a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z A B C D E F G H I +J 0=a 1=b 10=k 20=u 33=H 34=I -1=J
