You need to put \ in front of quotes if you want them printed.

print FH "libName = \"cmos28shp\"\n";

    My preferred method is to use heredoc style so there is only one print statement and your quotes can remain "natural"....
    my $outfile = ""; open FH, ">> $outfile"; print FH <<EOF; libName = "cmos28shp" tech_lib = "cmos28shp" EOF close FH;

    N.B. Note that using ">>" to open skillfile appends data to it, so running the program twice will duplicate the data in the file.

      Thanks a lot man, It's working fine. Just one more thing. Now, when I am printing out those lines, I need to use values from my array. I have a subroutine in which I am parsing values from a text file and the values are stored in an array, so can I just call a subroutine and use array reference to print out my text with the values from that array ? Because when I am doing that It's giving me this error

      Global symbol "$one_ref" requires explicit package name at + line 12.

        You would have to show more of what you're trying to do. It's difficult to nearly impossible to work out where you're going wrong if you showing errors without the lines where they're occurring.

        From the error, it seems as though you haven't declared $one_ref in the main program or the method, whichever it happens to be. Somewhere you need a my ($one_ref);. But that's just a guess.

        Put an update at the end of the original question, with the code attached as it stands now. PerlMonks allows questions to change dynamically.
