Consider the following instead:

use strict; use warnings; use autodie; open my $FILE1, '<', 'input.txt'; open my $FILE2, '>', 'output.txt'; while (<$FILE1>) { s/^HDR.{47}|FTR.+//; print $FILE2 $_; } close $FILE1; close $FILE2;
  • autodie will trap the file i/o errors (you're not handling these, but you should)
  • Use only lexical (my) file handles
  • Use while to iterate through the file
  • The two substitutions were combined into one

If FTR marks the footer to the end of the line, you can just use FTR.+ to remove it, since in your example there were only 30 characters left--including FTR. However, it's certainly OK to use FTR.{27}, if you prefer.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
