is it possible to delineate output with tab spaces rather than using commas
eg
322,345,432,455,655,677,899,540 to        322    345   432   455   655   677   899   540  

I am using this code :

print OUT "$n1,$n2,$n3,$n4,$n5,$n6,$n7,",(floor $avg),"\n";

replace the commas with \t to get the tabbed output

print OUT "$n1\t$n2\t$n3\t$n4\t$n5\t$n6\t$n7\t",(floor $avg),"\n";

print join("\t",$n1,$n2,$n3,$n4,$n5,$n6,$n7,floor $avg),"\n"';
print join(",",$n1,$n2,$n3,$n4,$n5,$n6,$n7,floor $avg),"\n"';

$, = "\t";
print $n1,$n2,$n3,$n4,$n5,$n6,$n7,floor $avg;
$, = ",";
print $n1,$n2,$n3,$n4,$n5,$n6,$n7,floor $avg;

You could also replace the commas with tabs, but in a comment, it's difficult to distinguish tabs from spaces
