I know itz simple but no idea abt perl.
IMHO, but others' mileage indeed may vary, this is SOPW, but not exactly a do-it-for-me helpdesk. So you'd better do a minimum effort to have some idea "abt perl" - all this is basic stuff.

It would also be very kind of you to speak proper english rather than dude jargon.

#!/usr/bin/perl #use warnings;
Do a favour to yourself and uncomment that line. Do another favour to yourself and
use strict;
as well.
open (GRAPH, "2211.txt") || die "Can't open 2211.txt: $!\n";4
So far so fine, only I'd write
open my $graph, '<', '2211.txt' or die "Can't open `2211.txt': $!\n";
instead (slightly more modern syntax).
while (<GRAPH>) { $a1 = push(@a1, $1); $a2 = push(@a2, $2); print @a1, @a2; }
Huh?!? No regex here, hence pointless use of $1, $2. What are $a1 and $a2 supposed to be?!? In any case you most probably either want
while (<GRAPH>) { /$some $regex ($with) ($parens)/; $a1 = $1; $a2 = $2; print $a1, $a2; }
my (@a1, @a2); while (<GRAPH>) { /$some $regex ($with) ($parens)/; push @a1, $1; push @a2, $2; } print @a1, @a2;
It all really depends on
  • what "two columns in the txt" actually mean (whitepace separated strings?),
  • what you actually want to print.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
