in reply to reading from file.

While running under strict (use strict; on the first line): Global symbol "$names" requires explicit package name at - line 8.. The scalar you declared is $name, with no s at the end.

Just so you know, you can write the second loop as:

for my $el (@names) { print "not valid" if $input ne $el; }

    sorry that was a typo. Can you see any particular reason that the file reads if there is only text on the first line of the file?
