I'm printing 3 vars here and reading them back.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
# declare your variables
my ($var1, $var2, $var3);

# Write the variables
open(my $varFile, '>', 'variables.txt') or die;
print $varFile "111111|2222222|3333333";
close $varFile;

# open the file
my $inFile = "variables.txt";
open DATA, $inFile or die "Can't open file: $!";
while (<DATA>) {
# chomp the line
# split the line into values and assign them to your variables
    ($var1,$var2,$var3) = split /\|/;
    print $var1, $var2, $var3
close DATA;
