in reply to What is the error in my script or file setup?
in thread File Input and Output

This works:

@list = qw( fred 20.4 harv 5.6 tony 5.13 dennis 401.1 ); $i="harv"; foreach $list(@list) { if($i eq $list) { print "YES!\n"; } }

Suggest you add open (FILE, "input.dat") or die "Oops can't open input.dat Perl says $!\n"; which will *probably* tell you that perl cna't find your file. Also you don't need to push your data into an array as you do but that is by the by.

cheers
