in reply to Manipulating Output

Here are a few comments on your existing code:

use strict; # always 'use strict' use warnings; # always 'use warnings' or the -w switch chomp (my @a = <DATA>); # chomp the array to get rid of extra \n's my $file = "bas.txt"; # get the open() out of the loop so it's not repeated unnecessarily open (FILE, ">>$file") || die "Can't open $file: $! \n"; print FILE "$_\n" for @a; # shorter; sweeter close(FILE); close(DATA); __DATA__ 222.222.333.444:firstServer

I know that I'm not answering your question (it's been done), but those are a few other things to keep in mind for the future.
