Hi

I started playing around with perl and need some input on this. If I have a file with usernames in this format:

username1, username2, username3, username4, etc.

how do i load this into an array and how do I then append a new name to the end of the file.

use strict;
my $file = "/file/path/here";

# Read names from file
open(FILE, $file) || die "Can't open $file: $!";
my $listOfNames = <FILE>;
close(FILE);
chomp $listOfNames;
my @names = split /[, ]+/, $listOfNames;

push(@names, "userM", "userN");  # Add new names like this...


# write names to file
open(FILE, ">$file") || die "Can't open $file: $!";
print FILE join(",", @names);
close(FILE);
