i have recently started learning perl.....and having issues when i try to read input from another file. the details of a script that i tried to run are as follows:
i made a text file by the name “text.txt” and the contents were
Then i wrote the following script
$data_file=" text.txt ";
$data_file=" text.txt ";
foreach $student (@raw_data)
print "The student $name bearing roll number $roll_no is in class $class";
the script produces no output and displays a message saying
“readline () closed filehandle at line ”
I tried the same with another file by the name “text.dat” holding the same data but it did not work either. Please help me out resolving this issue.

* use <pre lang="lang">...</pre> to insert a syntax highlighted code snippet.
For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.
* use <code>...</code> to highlight a variable or a single shell command.
* use <a href="url">title</a> to insert links.
* use other HTML tags, such as, <b>, <i>, <blockquote>, <sup>, <sub> for text formatting.
