I have a data file like the following:
***********************
a,b,c
d,e,f
g,h,j
k,l,m
***********************

As shown it is comma delimited

I want to load on the middle column (b,e,h, and l) into the array:
@numbers

Is that possible?  Or how do I load the entire list into the array but then access just the middle items?

open DAT, "data.txt" or die "Can not open data.txt $!\n";
push @numbers,(split(/,/))[1] while (<DAT>);
close DAT;
