hi, thank you for replying, it does not show what I expect it to. it indicates a syntax error near ") print"? Please keep in mind that I am very new to perl and learning bits and pieces :)

    Make sure you put it inside the loop. The "{ }" brackets contain everything that's inside of your loop.

    Syntax error it says. There's a close bracket before your print it says.

    Look at the code. Is that the close bracket on your loop list? Did you put the new print inside the curly {}'s of your loop?

      Hello, I put it in the brackets :) and received the following message: Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at line 92, <IN> line 12. (via secure crt)
