in reply to how can i read only the last line of a files

hi monk,
i saw your code,u are reading the content of files in an array.below subroutine may helps to read the last content of arrays.

@last=lastlines(\@a,\@b,\@c); print "@last\n"; sub lastlines { my @retlist=(); foreach my $aref(@_) { push @retlist,pop @$aref; } return @retlist; }
.

    This is equivalent code (though note davorg's reply for a much more robust solution) ... no need to iterate through everything:
    sub lastlines { return map { $_[-1] } @_; } # or, w/o using a sub: @last = ($a[-1], $b[-1], $c[-1]);
