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

Hello, I have the following code that I am trying to get to work.. There are a couple of components; 1. The .pl script (see contents below) 2. A template file rtr-template.txt (which contains the variables listed below - ie ##location##, ##rtrname## etc 3. A CSV file that contains all the variables.. What is suppose to happen, is that when you run the script, it processes the CSV, line by line, and creates an individual file called ("rtrname.txt") for each line.. What is currently happening, is that when I run it, it creates the first file fine.. but then stops after that, and doesn't process the subsequent lines..

#!/usr/bin/perl # use warnings; $template_file_name="rtr-template.txt"; while(<>) { ($location, $name, $lo0ip, $frameip, $framedlci, $eth0ip) = split (/,/); open(TFILE, "< $template_file_name") || die "config template file $ +template_file_name: $!\n"; $ofile_name = $name . ".txt"; open(OFILE, "> $ofile_name") || die "output config file $ofile_name +: $!\n"; while (<TFILE>) { s/##location##/$location/; s/##rtrname##/$name/; s/##eth0-ip##/$eth0ip/; s/##loop0-ip##/$lo0ip/; s/##frame-ip##/$frameip/; s/##frame-DLCI##/$framedlci/; printf OFILE $_; } }

Would any one be able to shed some light on what might be my issue? I am running; Perl Version 5, version 12, subversion 4 (v5.12.4), on a MAC OS X 10.8.2

    [SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
    [SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
