The + is there to keep print from thinking those parentheses contain its argument. You are missing the $ on diff in your if. The if doesn't match because the line does not start with digits.
use strict;
would have helped you some. Some judicious print statements would also be enlightening. The code is getting pretty bletcherous. Did you copy some of these constructs?

I've updated it just enough that it runs and you can see what you've got. I don't know where you want to take it from here.

use strict; use warnings; my $dev = qw/original1/; my $dev1 = qw/clinical1/; my $diff=0; # open (FOO, "samcmd a $dev 2>\&1 |" ) || die # "unable to open pipe... Broken? $!"; while (<DATA>) { if (/regular files|archdone files/) { local $, = "\n"; #s/^\w+(\s+)\w+(\s+)// && s/,//,; s/,//, print +(split)[2], $,; if (/^\d+/) { $diff -=$1; ##--## 62622-62535 } else { print "$_ does not start with digits.\n"; } } } print "Difference is: $diff\n"; #close (FOO) or warn "unable to close file $!"; __DATA__ regular files 62,622 597.488G 641547379187 archdone files 62,535 597.008G 641032761295
