How about something like this?

foreach $a (0..@data-1) { print or do something ; } ## end of foreach

If you have the length of the array it knows then when to stop.

    1. You should not use $a as your index variable, or really ever as a generic variable. $a and $b have special meaning for sort.
    2. I'm unclear on how your strategy splits the array into chunks of 100 records. There are certainly a myriad of ways to get this done, but it's not obvious to me how this is one of them.
