Tip #2 from the Basic debugging checklist: print the value of the $_ variable in your foreach loop. Does it contain what you expect?

print "$_\n";

    hi, thank you for replying, it does not show what I expect it to. it indicates a syntax error near ") print"? Please keep in mind that I am very new to perl and learning bits and pieces :)

      Make sure you put it inside the loop. The "{ }" brackets contain everything that's inside of your loop.

      Syntax error it says. There's a close bracket before your print it says.

      Look at the code. Is that the close bracket on your loop list? Did you put the new print inside the curly {}'s of your loop?

        Hello, I put it in the brackets :) and received the following message: Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at line 92, <IN> line 12. (via secure crt)
