open FILETWO, "$initialfile2" or die "cannot open $initialfile2 for read\n";

In addition:

  • You should use the 3-arg form of open().
  • You should not use bareword filehandles.
  • You should print out the system error that caused the die().

Like this:

open my $INFILE, '<', $fname or die "Couldn't open $fname: $!";
