Now that I have that under control...
If 'that' refers to the lack code tags in your OP, the situation is still out of control. A <code> tag is closed by a </code> tag, not by a </c> tag. Please see Markup in the Monastery. Please check the effects of your changes.
Printing to a file usually involves supplying an output file handle (see open) to the print statement. E.g.:
my $filename = 'file.name';
open my $fh_out, '>', $filename or die "opening '$filename': $!";
my $something_to_output_to_file = your_process();
print $fh_out "here is something for the file \n";
print $fh_out $something_to_output_to_file;
print $fh_out "that's all, folks! \n";
close $fh_out or die "closing '$filename': $!";
Please consider re-reading the answers you have been given in this and related threads. Please consider using lexical filehandles (as in the example given above). See also autodie.
