Ignoring the HERE doc, try this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use CGI; my $page = new CGI; my $value = $page->param("Comic"); ##########declare the names of the files for the loop my @Comm = qw( Images/Le_Comic.jpg Images/Le_Comic2.jpg Images/Le_Comic3.jpg Images/Le_Comic4.jpg Images/Le_Comic5.jpg Images/Le_Comic6.jpg Images/Le_Comic7.jpg Images/Le_Comic8.jpg Images/Le_Comic9.jpg Images/Le_Comic10.jpg Images/Le_Comic11.jpg Images/Le_Comic12.jpg Images/Thanksgiving_Comic.jpg ); #Open up the comments file my $file = '../comment.txt'; open FILE, "< $file" or die "Cannot open $file for reading"; my @Comment = <FILE>; close(FILE); my ( $Como, $Number); #do a "for" loop to make it choose the quote for my $i ( 0 .. $#Comment ) { if ($value eq $Comm[$i]) { $Como = $Comment[$i]; $Number = $i + 1; last; } }

Your biggest problem was this line:

my ('$i','$Como','$Number');

Don't declare variables by putting them in single quotes. This may not fix your problem, but at least the program should run.
