here's a cut/paste of my code:

$INFILE="list.txt";
$OUTFILE="out.txt";

open(IN,"$INFILE");
@lines=<IN>;
close(IN);

open(OUT,">$OUTFILE");          
foreach(@lines){
print OUT "@lines";
}
close(OUT);


*The problem is I want it to print out each line with extra characters but it is messing up... I can't figure out why. ex:
print OUT "a @lines b";
would give someting like this in the text file:
ab blah <which is a line in the txt file.


What I'm trying to do is open a input txt file and read that file then write each line to a new file that will add extra words that I place in such as <a href=\"@lines"\>@lines</a> to make each line a URL but it is messing up.

If you can change my code around to make this work or re-write it entirely, please do. I need an answer ASAP! thank you!

   print OUT "<a href=${Line}></a>\n";
}
