This is not a homework assignment.
I need to record any IPs that appear more thn 50 times in a file.  Once the IP appears more than 50 times in a file, I need to copy that IP address to a new file.

How is this done in perl?

You can just create a hash, with the key as an IP. Each time that you encounter an IP, increase the value of that IP in the hash by 1.  Something like this should work - it's not tested, but it should at least give you an idea.

my %ips;


while (<>) {
     #code to read in IP
     $ips{$currentip}++;
}


foreach ( keys($ips) ) {
     print if ($ips{$_} > 0);

well, to make the code more complete (and confusing :-) ):

while(<>)
{
  print "$1\n" if(/((?:\d+\.){3}\d+)/ && ++$ips{$1} > 50);
}

The above will give you ip address reading, counting, and printing.

if you expect more than one IP per row, you should use this code:

while(<>)
{
  while(/((?:\d+\.){3}\d+)/g)
  {
    print "$1\n" if(++$ips{$1} > 50);
  }
}

while (<>) {
   ++$ip{$1} if (/((\d{1,3}\.){3}\d{1,3})/g);
}

open OUT, ">redundant_ip" or die "could not open reduntant_ip file <$!>";
foreach $ip (sort keys %ip) {
   print $ip if ($ip{$ip} > 50);
}
close OUT;

I forgot to include the FH and the \n on the print statement, so it should read:
   print OUT "$ip\n" if ($ip{$ip} > 50);
