You can also save some typing where you build your @array from the MSG file handle. Your

foreach $line (<MSG>) { chomp($line); push(@array, $line);

could be written

chomp( @array = <MSG> );

It is good practice to put

use strict; use warnings;

at the top of your scripts to enforce a little coding discipline and catch typos. It is also good practice to use lexical file handles, the three-argument form of open and to check that it succeeded (you do this), but also give the o/s error (see $! in perlvar) to give a better idea of why it failed.

open my $msgFH, q{<}, q{/some/file} or die qq{open: < /some/file: $!\n};

I hope these points are helpful.
