Perl-how to print to file


Hi folks,

Perl
====

Instead of using following command printing output to a file;

$ perl AAA.pl > /pathto/name_of_file

is it possible adding "print file function" to the script

1) If YES
Please advise how to make it.

2) Can I add following bash syntax to the script
user=$(whoami);
now=$(date +%Y.%m.%d.%R);
File="/tmp/satimis/comparison_${user}_${now}.txt";

so that the printout file will carry name of creator, date and time, etc.

If possible please shed me some light to re-edit the script.

TIA

B.R.

your answer to question 2:
user=$(whoami);
now=$(date +%Y.%m.%d.%R);
File="/tmp/satimis/comparison_${user}_${now}.txt";

$user = `whoami`;
$now = `date +%Y.%m.%d.%R`
$File = "/tmp/satmis/comparison_$user_$now.txt"

those aren't regualr single quoats, they the back tics that share a key with ~.
basically $var = `command` will set the $var to whatever the output of the command is
