Although I should not help you with detail for your project, I can give 
you some clues:

(1) Read your text files into a string
(2) Split the string into an array based on delimiter '^'(make sure '^" 
is unique in your text file), e.g. @array = split(/\^/, $textString);
(3) Print the array elements only with odd number of index(hint: if( ($i 
% 2) == 1) { print footer...} )

BTW, how can you know NC TriLUG could help you remotely while there are 
bunch of people in TX may provide help locally?
