Here is one perl script. Check for errors then have a try.

#!/usr/bin/perl

$PassMark = 40;
$InputFile = "filename";
$OutPutFile = "results";

open (INPUTFILE, "$InputFile") || die "Error Reason $!";
@DATA=<INPUTFILE>;
close(INPUTFILE);

open (RESULTFILE, ">$OutPutFile") || die "Error Reason $!";

foreach $Record(@DATA) {
chomp($Record);
my($Fname, $Sname, $Mark) = split(/ /, $Record);

if($Mark >= $PassMark) {
print RESULTFILE "$Fname $Sname PASS\n"; $s++;
} else {
print RESULTFILE "$Fname $Sname FAIL\n"; $f++;
}
}
close(RESULTFILE);

print "$f students Passed, $f Failed(don't hate them Smilie )\n";
exit;

GoodLuck..!!

One of the virtues of Unix, There is More Than One Way TO Do It:

awk '{if($3&gt;40) print $1" "$2" pass"; else print $1" "$2" fail"}' <I>input_file</I>
