Hmm, first, sine when does perl use .h files?  If not perl, what
language uses $variables?  Certainly not C, which is what a .h file is
usually for.

Also, I think you meant:
   if ($spare != $free) $spare + $cash = $yours;
   else if ($spare == $free) $spare + $take_it_away = $yours;
   else $go_away;

since in most languages I've seen, the results of your program when
$spare!=$free would be executing bother $spare + $cash = $yours and
$go_away, and that doesn't seem to be what you meant.

Also, what language recognizes $spare + $cash = $yours?  Most would want
something along the line of $yours = $spare + $cash.

Hmm, there are so many things wrong here, it is hard to know whay else
to start until a few get answered.  I guess the most important things
would be, what language is this, and are you trying to say you will pay
some amount for the hardware, or you wont?
