User input Can't Post

Hello there
I have s very simple Perl question
How can I get a user input and write is to a file
Say, I want to ask the user for 10 sentence of input
I then want to write these 10 sentence to a file, let us name it input.txt
I and thinking like this
Print "Please enter 10 senteces.\n";
S_ =(<STDIN>);
Then what?
As you see I am still scratching the surface of Perl world
Any help would be appreciated

Here's one way:

use strict; 
use warnings;

my @sentences;
print "Please enter 10 sentences.\n";

for ( 1 .. 10 ) {
print "\nSentence $_ (press <Enter> when done):\n";
my $sentence = <>;
push @sentences, $sentence;

open my $fh, '>', 'input.txt' or die $!;
print $fh $_ for @sentences;
close $fh;

print "\nThank you.\n";

This first prompts the user for the 10 sentences, then enters a for loop that iterates 10 times, getting a sentence each pass and pushes those sentences onto an array. The array's elements are then written out to a file.

Hope this helps!
