Need another file split into subfiles

This is along the same line as my last question:     2013-11-15 at 17:33:08 ID28295719

In this case, it is one file that is being split into about 380 files.

Each section to be copied out begins with /*Sec and ends with the line before the next /*Sec.

The file should be named Sec-01-01.sql, Sec-01-02.sql, etc.

/*Sec-01-01:Connecting to a Database*/

USE AdventureWorks2008R2;

/*Sec-01-02:Retrieving Specific Columns*/

SELECT  NationalIDNumber,
FROM    HumanResources.Employee;

/*Sec-01-03:Retrieving All Columns*/

FROM    HumanResources.Employee;

/*Sec-01-04:Specifying Rows to Be Returned*/

SELECT  Title,
FROM    Person.Person
WHERE   Title = 'Ms.';

SELECT  Title, 
FROM  Person.Person 
WHERE Title = 'Ms.' AND 
        LastName = 'Antrim';

    exit 1;

open FILE, "<$file";

open OUT, ">/dev/null";

while(<FILE>) {
    if(/^\/\*(.*):/) {
        # Found new file 
        # Close previous file.
        close OUT;
        # print "Found section $1\n";
        open OUT, ">$1.sql";
