in thread user input file

If you want the user to type the file name into the interactive terminal that Padre spawns, then you should assign the file name from STDIN - see I/O Operators in perlop. That code will probably look like:
my $filename = <>; chomp $filename; open(FILE,"<", $filename) or die "Open failed for $filename: $!"; + my @lines=<FILE>;
The chomp is necessary because your input will have a trailing newline which is not in the file name.
