    What does the 'and' do? (Googling for "perl 'and'" or "perlsyn 'and'" doesn't give much usefullness :P) I would have thought that that would just throw away every line of my file..?

      'and' is an operator. The idea would be to return a true value from your subroutine if you want to skip that line, and a false value otherwise.
