...ldifgrep line 59...

I don't see a print on line 59 out of 36 of your code listing. Perhaps you aren't running the script you think you are running?

To debug uninitialized warnings, try putting an if statement near the line in question; if (not defined $var) then print out all of your variables to see why the value became undefined in the first place.

    i have re-updated perl script code, pointing line to for the error..

      How about reading with block. If you set input separator with empty string, you will get block.
      #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; open( my $fh, '<', "ldif.file") or die $!; $/=""; while( my $item=<$fh> ){ print "===========\n"; print "$item\n"; print "===========\n"; if ($item =~ /something/is ){ print "as you like\n"; } } close $fh; __DATA__ =========== dn: uid=testing,ou=comp,o=test.com dpwnc: BH mail: example@great.com sn: example =========== =========== dn: uid=testing1,ou=comp,o=test.com dpwnc: CH mail: example1@great.com sn: example1 =========== =========== dn: uid=testing2,ou=comp,o=test.com dpwnc: DH mail: example2@great.com sn: example2 ===========

        I wish to print output as below, can you please explain more detail how i can get this output?" meanwhile i appreciate if you could tell me what do you mean by print "as you like"?

        I'm still beginner in perl scripting, couldn't get it. I'm sorry. Please explain further.

        dn: uid=testing,ou=comp,o=test.com mail: example@great.com dn: uid=testing1,ou=comp,o=test.com mail: example1@great.com dn: uid=testing2,ou=comp,o=test.com mail: example2@great.com
