Hi,

I wrote a perl script that does the following things.

1) Inputfile is provided
2) split input file using \n
3) if a line starts with "EMP" string then split the line with "|" and get the first word which is EMP ID
4) there might be multiple lines that starts with EMP so get all EMP ID's and out put those to a txt file

I wrote the below script but this one is not working not sure where did I made the mistake.

Sample Input file:

05|AAAAA|BBBBBBBB|BBBBCVCCBVBCV
EMP|10000000001|00000078|ENG|1
300|03/03/2014|12/31/9999|0.00
05|ASDFASDFAAAA|BBASDFASDBBBBBB|BBASDFASDBBCVCCBVBCV
EMP|100000123134|000000723128|ENG|1
300|01/12/2014|11/3/9999|0.00
