in thread print +split

Chas.... I understand now... my bad. Anyway it is printing the two elements of not computing the difference.
root@stkv440-srvA [ / ]-> perl /usr/local/bin/ohiohealth/filecp_chk.OH 64696 64684 Difference is: 64696 - 64684
I got it... I was a matter interpolation in my print statement. THANK YOU CHAS!!!! : ) Have a nice week!

    You 're welcome!
    I didn't see your print statement, but I'm sure I know what you mean. *Actually, you can imbed function calls within strings, although it isn't necessary here.* Look at:
    $diff[1]=62622; $diff[2]=62535; print $diff[1]-$diff[2],"\n"; print "$diff[1]-$diff[2]\n"; print "@{[$diff[1]-$diff[2]]}\n";
