While(<database>) display results Can't Post

Does anyone have a clue how to solve this problem! I want to add code that will limit 10 or so, per page results to display, to tie in with the following Crazywhile(<database>)code without using a module..

open (DATABASE, "$datafile") || die "Can't Open $datafile";

@results = grep(/$searchstr/i,$_);
if ($#results >= 0) {
foreach $i (@results) {
chomp ($i);

($sku, $category, $price, $short_description, $image,
$long_description, $shipping, $user1, $options) = split(/\|/, $_);

No help needed for this part - goes on to print result.......

Something like this (untested)

$per_page = 10; # records per page 
$page; # Page to be displayed
# (you'll need to pass this in somehow

open DATABASE, $datafile or die "Can't open $datafile: $!\n";

# get the records that match your search string
my @results = grep { /$searchstring/ } <DATABASE>;

# get the correct subset of the results
my @display = @results[($page-1)*$per_page .. ($page*$per_page)-1];

# Now just display the records in @display

Or you may be better off looking at the Data::Page and Data::PageSet modules from CPAN.
