Merge files & delete row based on criteria using Perl.

Gurus,

I need some help creating a Perl script to merge 3 files into one, then delete rows based on criteria.

Example:

File1.txt
data|3004|001
data|3005|002
data|3007|003

File2.txt
data|3008|001
data|3009|002
data|3010|003

File3.txt
data|3011|001
data|3012|002
data|3013|003

I want these 3 files merged into one.

Example:

Merge.txt
data|3004|001
data|3005|002
data|3007|003
data|3008|001
data|3009|002
data|3010|003
data|3011|001
data|3012|002
data|3013|003

Once the 3 files have been merged I want to delete rows based on the following criteria:

If column 3 = "001" then delete the entire row.

Final Result:

Merge.txt
data|3005|002
data|3007|003
data|3009|002
data|3010|003
data|3012|002
data|3013|003

Your help is greatly appreciated.
