You might want to check on Net::NIS. This module allows you to access the 'ypmatch' functionality directly, without having to do all that sorting and cutting. (Haven't used it myself, but the docs look promising.)

You'll also definitely want to use strict; and put a -w on your Perl invocation line. :)

    LanX is reminded that public sarcasm is causing rpoblems nowadays ... ehm ...
    [Your Mother]: Americans love massacres as long as it's brown and red people. Ooops. That was supposed to be a state secret. There goes my Q clearance.
    [LanX]: I LOVE YOU ALL GUYS! :)
    [Your Mother]: It would hillarious to learn the Flat Earth movement was started by misunderstood sarcasm.
    [Corion]: Your Mother: Aah - Server Side Events maybe, which mostly sends events from the server as they come up?
    [Your Mother]: Sounds right.
    [Corion]: Your Mother: I think that that is basically the origin story. Flat earth started as trolling, but then the real believers drove out the trolls
    LanX is pretty brown in summer
    [Your Mother]: Though a bad match for the OP in question here. :P
    [Corion]: Your Mother: Yeah
