Hi cbkihong,

There's no output after the modification. Can you help ?

$[ = 1;                 # set array base to 1
$, = ' ';               # set output field separator
$\ = "\n";              # set output record separator


line: while (<>) {
    chomp;      # strip record separator
    @Fld = split(' ', $_, 9999);
    if ($Fld[1] eq '**' && $Fld[8] eq '2007' && $Fld[2] =~ /'"$var"'/) {
        print $_;

My csh is named as "trying"

First make sure your 'var' shell variable can be passed to Perl. If "print $ENV{'var'}" in Perl doesn't print anything, you can stop playing with the Perl side because you shell simply cannot export var to the Perl process.
