#you probably want
die "cannot open file>:$!";
#to tell you the reason for a failure

#if you want to print to OUT, you can say
printf OUT ("%20s %20s %s\n",
           "Accession Number",
           "Word in Narrative",
           "Sequence");

#what's in /home/tmclaugh/list/text.txt?
#are you sure the /NARRATIVE\s+:(.+)\n\w+\s+:/gs matches anything?
