file into memory

Hi all,

I would like to open a file with the content:

peter 141444
oscar e324345
simon  j85547

in a perl script - but instead of reading the file one line at a time I
would like to suck the whole file into memory and processing each line from
there.

I have tried to:

open FILE, "< tmp.txt";
@xx = <FILE>;
    while  $file(@xx)    {
................
}

but I cant get it to work  - where did I go wrong ?

Thanks!

/Jakob
