I am a beginner and this probably an extremely simple question, please excuse me.

How do I reverse a flatfiles contents, what I mean by reverse is this:

Existing flatfile contents.

1\n
2\n
3\n

What I want to convert it to is:

3\n
2\n
1\n

This is how I currently read the file:

open(FILE,"$dbase")
@all=<FILE>;
close(FILE);
