    Most likely your course material covers the knowledge needed to answer this exam question. I recommend studying the course material.

      He got hung up on the very first question. Somehow I don't think he's going to get very far.

      Well, at least it's encouraging to see that there are Perl courses being taught out there, and that this one encourages the use of my. On the other hand, the question doesn't include my preferred answer: read the lines into $_, so you don't have to specify any arguments to split to get the desired behavior.

        I've been teaching Perl for 10 years now. I'm telling you, Perl is not dead! It's out there!

        There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

        You have read a text file containing whitespace separated columns of numbers.

    I do? Really? What a surprise. Is it a gift for me?

    fellow monk, there are better ways to ask homework questions. First step in my opinion is to try and solve the problem yourself. If it works, you've accomplished something truly great. If it crashes, burns and dies in the flames then you'll accomplish even greater things by posting a well titled and formatted question to Seekers of Perl Wisdom so that others in a similar predicament as yours can learn by it.

    At least, in my honest opinion, is how Perl Monks is supposed to work.
