Do you know where your variables are?

Don't use variables, but an array or hash. Would do something like:
while( <> ){ split; splice @_, 0, 2; #removes first two elements store_elements_function( @_ ); #sub to store the remainder }
If you really want to name the items, use a hash. Define the names first:
my @std_keys = qw/proto .../; my @ext_keys = qw/name9 name10 name11/; .. #and in loop: my %hash; if( @_ < 9 ){ @hash{@std_keys} = @_; } else { @hash{(@std_keys, @ext_keys)} = @_; } print "My proto is: ",$hash{'proto'},"\n"; ...
Hope this helps. You can read up on it in perldata.

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.
