Assistance in Perl scripting

PFA file "color.txt".
Note : There is no newline character in the file. I have manually inserted the newline char to make it easy to understand.

I am expecting out in the form as specified in second file "out.txt"

I need a perl script to perform the task.

Thanks in advance.

Can you elaborate more?

How are going to run this script? Is 'color.txt' the input file?
