Help with -e switch

I'd like to know if it's possible to combine the -i and -e switches.
I have the following script, and I'd like not to have to go to the
bother of firing up an editor, chmod +x ing it and co:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
open FILE, $ARGV[0];
while (<FILE>)
       {
	 print if (/(^org_name)|(^email)|(^$)/);
       }

This script is for validating some paragraph delimeted data files for
what it's worth...

TIA

KD
