( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

My code deletes all the records not just the one line I need any solutions? Thanks in advace.

sub del { my $output="data.txt"; my ($delroadName, $delroadNumber) = @_; open(DAT,"$output") || die("Can't open file"); my @data = <DAT>; close (DAT); chomp (@data); open(DAT,">$output") || die("Can't open file"); for (@data) { my @field = split(/\:/); next if $field[0] eq $delroadName && $field[0] == $delroadNumber; print ("$_\n"); } close $output; }

with the above code it erases everything in the file not the line needing removed for example if i want to remove avr:801:racks:home the code removes all data
