I believe this will do what you are looking for:

while (<DATA>) { chomp; my ($s, $a, $c, $r) = split /[,\t]/; die "Invalid string: $_" if !defined $r; print "Processing: $_\n"; } __DATA__ clientserver,00001,AIT,SOURCE clientserve|00001|AIT|SOURCE

Output:

Processing: clientserver,00001,AIT,SOURCE Invalid string: clientserve|00001|AIT|SOURCE at 1006854.pl line 6, <DA +TA> line 2.

Just change the die and print lines to do what you actually need.
