It is because you are using "$recno^$qno^$vtext"; in your print statement, but they aren't declared in the block.

For Example:
my $a = <STDIN>; if($a eq 'y'){ my ($fname, $lname) = ('tom', 'test'); print "$fname $lname\n"; #OK because vars declared in block } print "$fname $lname\n"; #Vars are out of scope now, will die under st +rict

Your code should look something like this, so your vars can be used between loop iterations.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; open (IN, "infile") or die "Can't open input file: $!\n"; open (OUT, ">outfile") or die "Can't create outfile for write: $!\n "; my ($junk,$qno,$junk2,$vtext,$recno); while (<IN>) { if (/^##recstart/) { ($junk,$recno) = split; $recno =~ s/'//g; }elsif (/^##v/) { ($junk,$qno,$junk2,$vtext) = split (/ /,$_,4); $qno =~ s/'//g; $vtext =~ s/'//g; }else { print OUT "$recno^$qno^$vtext"; } }

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
