in reply to help me please

/me hopes hes not violating any monastery standards.. everything on the command line is automagically placed into the @argv array, split on spaces. moreoever, the diamond operator automagicaly reads from the first arguement in the argv array (or something like that.. go look it up)

    That would actually be the @ARGV array.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $filename= shift @ARGV; ....

    As BUU mentionned <> works automagically: you can call the following script with perl my_file

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; while( <>) { # reads from my_file ... }
