Simple (I think) for... question? Can't Post

I imagine this to be a pretty beginner question, but I can't find the answer anywhere...

I'm trying to read in a file, but stop at a certain length of the file, say line 1000...

is it possible to use "for" to meet 2 conditions??? I currently have this:

for ( $i = 1; $_ = <FILE>; $i++ )

but is there a way to say this:

for ( $1 = 1; $_ = <FILE> AND i < 1000; $i++ )

It's very easy. Use the '&&' operator (or you can use the 'and' operator).

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>

for ($i = 0; $_ = <FILE> and $i < 10; $i++) {
# ...

Read perldoc perlop for information on the && operator.
