Good catch on the quotes around the filename. I intentionally left it all uncommented. But lets have some more fun with it:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use IO::File; use constant FILENAME => 'filename'; { package cntr; sub TIESCALAR{bless[pop],__PACKAGE__} sub FETCH{ $_[0][0]++ } } my $file = IO::File->new( "< ". FILENAME ) or die "Failed to open '@{[FILENAME]}', $!"; my @elements; { local ( $a, $/ ) = $/.$/; @elements = split $a => <$file>; } $file->close(); print "Here are the elements of the array:\n"; tie my $i, 'cntr', 1; print map {$i.': {'."$_}$/"} @elements;
Yeah, that would go over well with a teacher or professor.

Update: So I changed the code a little from the original post. I actually tested it, and didn't like the way the newlines hung around. This fixes that. View source for the old code.

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