in reply to Reading two text files parallelly...

You probably want to read each file explicitly and use a "last" (or a breaking variable) to exit the loop when done. something like:

my $more_to_read = 1; while($more_to_read){ $more_to_read = 0 if(eof(F1) && eof(F2)); my $f1 = <F1>; my $f2 = <F2>; #some processing here }

UPDATE: You should probably use strict and warnings, it will give you better diagnostic info on what actually went wrong
