    ...and you can get a better start here if you'll read the docs; particularly, On asking for help and How do I post a question effectively?.
Despite Parson choroba's generous response, this is NOT code-a-matic. We try to help those like yourself -- "new to perl" -- by helping them learn; not by solving their problems. So next time you have a problem like this; try to organize your thoughts about how you'd do the job on paper, and then, using perldoc -f function and the fine Tutorials here, try to come up with code to solve your quandry.

If it works, you've really learned something; if it doesn't, and you can't figure out "why," then by all means, come back with the issue, your code (and data; each wrapped in <c>...</c> tags), an explanation of how your code fails to satisfy your intent, and verbatim quotes of any error messages or warnings.

P.S. use strict; use warnings; or a recent enough version of Perl that invoking the version (for example, use 5.014;) does so for you. Those pragmas alone will help you find many sneaky little mistakes (to say nothing of big ones.

PPS: If the solution choroba provided doesn't work for you, check that the quoting used is that required by your system -- windoze won't like what you've been given.
