Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

XY problem question here...
What are you going to be using those arrays for? Are they huge, or is the sample/good a small subset of the input data? There may be better ways to approach the entire task.

Perhaps consider something more like this:

use strict; use warnings; open my $ifh, '<', '' or die; open my $ofh_samples, '>', 'samples.txt' or die; open my $ofh_good, '>', 'goodlines.txt' or die; $|=1; my $total = -s ''; my $progress = 0; my $linecount = 0; while (my $line = <$ifh>) { $linecount++; $progress += length ($line); print $ofh_samples $1 if $line =~ /^sample\s+(\S+)/; print $ofh_good $1 if $line =~ /^good\s+(\S+)/; printf "Processing... %3.1f%% completed... \r", 100*$progress/$tot +al unless $linecount %100; }
That will keep little more than one line in memory at a time, and you can then deal with the pieces separately. Uncomment the comments to give a progress display.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
