in reply to Something is wrong and I don'tkow what

I appreciate all of the advice that was given.I was also proud of myself for getting this to work.I honestly just did not understand the advice or I would have used it.I wrote three scripts and this was the first one that I ran. I will post the other two here tommorrow after I try and run them I am sure they are better.I took everthing right out of PERL IN A NUTSHELL on the third one
Thanks Monk2b
