in thread Why does the array not reset each time I call the function?

Having just implemented something that does exactly what you describe, I have one recommendation: use Text::CSV_XS. Treat the passwd, group, and shadow files as CSVs separated by ':'. Build data structures, compare then, then use the same module to output the new files.

You will save yourself a lot of hassle.

Also, don't use DATA as the name of a file handle, it's special. Also, always use strict and warnings. You'll save yourself loads of debugging time.
