Match or No Match, that is the question!!

Hi, I have a simple script, which reads an email file, then greps another file which has the email address & real name of the users, then prints the email address & name if it finds a match, or prints No Match for $line if no match found. I cannot get it to wortk though!! My code is as follows -

open(FILE, "$path/$file");

foreach $line(<FILE>) {

open(GREP, "cat $path | grep $line|");

while(<GREP>) {

if (/(\S+)\s?[-]\s?(\S+\s+\S+)/) { print "$1 - $2"; } - John Smith

else { print "No Match for $line"; }




Any Help appreciated!!!!
