mmhhh, different possibilites that this doesn't work

  • try if this works:
    use strict; use warnings; my @list; while(<DATA>) { chomp; push @list, $_; } my $i="harv"; foreach my $list (@list) { if($i eq $list) { print "YES!\n"; } } __DATA__ fred 20.4 harv 5.6 tony 5.13 dennis 401.1
    The DATA section behaves exactly like a file - inside your file and you don't have to open it. If it does then
  • check if your file opened correctly (and specify the opening mode): open (FILE, "<", "input.dat") or die "Couldn't open input.dat: $!"; The die will abort the program if 'input.dat' couldn't be opened. The $! variable contains an error message and is set automatically if an error during the open occured.
  • You should use strict; and use warnings; (equivalent to perl -w). It protects you from typing mistakes - there aren't any in your example, this is more general advice. And it shows useful warnings if you do some possibly 'stupid' things.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
