Re: file into memory
Message ID:
I am very new to perl.
I dont think I get your question.

How about using "foreach" instead of "while".
foreach ( @xx )

while $file ( @xx ) will actually be interpolated to,
$file("peter 141444 \noscar e324345 \nsimon  j85547\n"); 
which is as good as $file(0); and will never work.
