Assuming that the format for every grade is '<b>NAME</b>, grade: GRADE<br>' and that there are no lines that begin incidentally with the same format (Well actually you don't have if you use the regex I wrote. At least I think so...), you can use this little snippet that uses regex to create this HTML page (You can easily alter it as you wish to just print it and not create an HTML file):

open (FILE, "+<$path/finalgrades.html") or die "Can't open file: $!"; +# where $path is the full path to the directory where the file reside +s. while (<FILE>) { if (m/^<b>[^<>]</b>, grade: (\d+)<br>$/) { my $name = $1; my $grade = $2; open (HTML, "+>>$path/$name.html") or die "$!"; print HTML "<html><head><title>CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PARTICIPANT +$name</title></head><body><h1>$name</h1> has just reviece "$grade" as + a grade for this seminar. Congratulations!!!<br></body></html> } } close (FILE) or die "$!";

Note that you should want to use to print the HTML taks instead of printing them directly. Go to for more info on the CGI module.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
