Check if this helps...


Code:
TEST = "test.txt";
open(TEST) or die("Could not open log file.");
foreach $line (<TEST>) {
    chomp($line);              # remove the newline from $line.
    # do line-by-line processing.
}

# 3  
Code:
open (F, "test.txt") || die "Could not open test.txt: $!\n";
@test = <F>;
close F;

Perhaps you should read one of the many excellent Perl tutorials on the net rather than rely entirely on trial and error, though.
