The elsif statement repeats the output and I am not sure why

sub viewrailcarsroadname{ no warnings 'redefine'; no warnings 'uninitialized'; print color 'green'; open(MYINPUTFILE, "railcardata.txt"); # open for input $| = 1; my @lines = <MYINPUTFILE>; # read file into list close (MYINPUTFILE); printf (" ===============================\n\n" +); printf (" | VERIFY CAR ROAD NAME |\n\n" +); printf (" ===============================\n\n" +); printf (" \n\n" +); printf (" PLEASE INSERT ROADNAME TO VERIFY:\n\n +"); printf (" \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n"); my $carroadnameverify = <STDIN>; chomp($carroadnameverify); printf ("\n ================================================== +=================\n\n"); printf (" | ROAD NAME | ROAD NUMBER | CAR TYPE | INTERCH +ANGE RAILROAD |\n\n"); printf (" ==================================================== +===============\n\n\n"); foreach my $carroadnameverify2 (@lines) { if ($carroadnameverify2 =~ /$carroadnameverify/) { my $format = " %-13s %-15s %-12s %0s"; printf ("$format", split/\:/, "$carroadnameverify2"); } elsif ($carroadnameverify2 =~ '') { printf ("CAR RECORD NOT FOUND"); } } # END FILE LOOP printf ("\n\n\n\n WHEN YOU ARE DONE VIEWING HIT RE +TURN TWICE:\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n"); my $input = <STDIN>; chomp($input=<STDIN>); structure::railcar(); } # END VIEW SUB
