I have 2 files with many lines.

File one example:
CN=VXX,CN=ug88888,OU=America,OU=State,OU=VXX,
File two example
ul22222 Jon Smith
ug8888 Mildred Apple
I need a routine that will take the ug88888 portion of the first file and pull out the corresponding full line in file two.  Then add the two together so the final output is
ug8888 Mildred Apple CN=VXX,CN=ug88888,OU=America,OU=State,OU=VXX,

Thanks,

Let me try that again:

File one example:
CN=VXX,CN=ug8888,OU=America,OU=State,OU=VXX,
File two example
ul22222 Jon Smith
ug8888 Mildred Apple
I need a routine that will take the ug8888 portion of the first file and pull out the corresponding full line in file two.  Then add the two together so the final output is
ug8888 Mildred Apple CN=VXX,CN=ug8888,OU=America,OU=State,OU=VXX,

#!/usr/bin/perl
open F2,"<filetwo" or die $!;
my %CN = map{(/((\w+)\s+.*)/)[1,0]}<F2>;
close F2;
open F1,"<fileone" or die $!;
print "@CN{/CN=(\w+)/g} $_"  while <F1>;
close F1;

Ok that works but how do I pipe the output to a file?
