make sure there are no trailing spaces on the line with 'END', and that there is a newline after END. consult node 90272, Here, doccy doccy. nice doccy. heredoc, treat. for more info.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $file = "/etc/passwd"; open(PASSWD, $file) or die "Couldn't open $file: $!\n"; unless(eof(PASSWD)) { print $_; }
Hope this helps.
