Project Description

Need a small perl script to read a database file below. This file is simple text with the "|" pipe separator.



There could be additional notes about the user as in line 6.




The two fields of each line are the user name and password.


If a line as in the 2nd,3rd,5th, & 7th lines have no password we
need to pass those up and go to the next.


This file can be any length. The code needs to be able to
process any size file.


I need the user name and password extracted from this file and printed to another file with the username and password

on each line.
