in reply to OK... I am confused and lost :( Editing FlatFile

use strict and warnings (-w). Consider using an array or a hash instead of all those variable names. E.g.:

my @fields = qw(position institution dept etc); for my $rec (@records) { chomp $rec; my %old; @old(@fields} = split /\t/, $rec; if ($old{position} != $viewposition) { print join("\t", @old{@fields}),"\n"; } else { ... } }
