If you have a question on how to do something in Perl, or you need a Perl solution to an actual real-life problem, or you're unsure why something you've tried just isn't working... then this section is the place to ask. Post a new question!

However, you might consider asking in the chatterbox first (if you're a registered user). The response time tends to be quicker, and if it turns out that the problem/solutions are too much for the cb to handle, the kind monks will be sure to direct you here.

Acce sing single element without args

    to be more precise. Here is the code of a sub

    sub interface_control { my $s = shift; my (@r, $v, @h); $s->get_handles(rtrs=>\@r, vars=>\$v, hosts=>\@h);

    get_handles returns the handle for the args specified. These args are stored as hash/key pair in a file

    Call to the sub is made via interface_control($s)

    MY question is , i want to specifically access, one of the element in the array @r, say only $r[0]. Is there a way to access this or pass any reference to interface_control call

    Hi Monks, again, seems like simple problem but I can't solve this. I would like to control one program (that is normally controlled from terminal) with perl program. So , I understand there are few ways of managing it. I started with reading output of the program using pipes and I can not do it. Here is an example of what I am talking about:
    # open my $READ, "-|", "./"; while (<$READ>) { print $_; } close $READ;
    Here is the program that I am trying to interact with:
    print "How old are you? "; my $age = <>; print "You are $age.";
    The way I understand first program will open program and display "How old are you?" in the terminal,but it is not the case. What is the issue here? I would like to catch output from , and respond to it. I also understand that I will have to fork the program to be able to do writing and reading from at the same time. Thanks like always. Robert

Most Efficient Way to match this

    I am reading in a file whose line looks like this:


    My script needs to match a string in a variable which happens to be a userid and I need to match the userid in the file...first "word" to that first colon.

    example: userid matches userid so bale.

    So, basically, the jist is: 1) the following code is my idea (it is paraprhased, because I am not going to actually write the code for opening files, etc here.) 2) I need to figure out the most efficient way to code the idea of: "if line to first colon matches variable".

    if($linefraq eq $user) { return; #or otherwise abort from sub } else { #do whatever to the file }

    The linefraq variable would hold just the userid "substring" from the line read from the file. Of course, in practice, each line will be read and checked for the userid.

    Thank-you for your help!

    I am a total beginner and have a script like this: It runs fine the only problem is it does not copy the data in output1.txt to output3.txt. It creates output3.txt but does not copy the data. Why?

    #!/usr/bin/perl my $server = `uname -n`; print $server; chomp $server; # Display all the files in /tmp directory. $dir = "/usr/ent/newdir/db/sign/*"; my @files = </usr/ent/newdir/db/sign/*files*>; open(my $outfh, '>', '/tmp/output1.txt') or die "cannot open file"; foreach $LINE (@files ){ print $outfh $LINE; close FH; } use File::Copy; {$oldlocation = "/tmp/output1.txt"; $newlocation = "/tmp/output3.txt"; copy($oldlocation, $newlocation); }

    Hello Monks

    Quick question, I'm submitting a PBS job to the cluster that has a perl script with Parallel::ForkManager. In this script I want to fork off 32 processes for each file in an array I'm looping through.

    When I ask for  #PBS -l nodes=4:ppn=8

    does that mean that perl will fork off each process to run on each processor? Or do I need use threads;

Passing values to a Perl script from PHP

    > Looking if I can pass on the user selected values ( in php form) to the perl script.

    Since you are calling the script using "system", there are a few general ways of getting the caller (PHP in this case) parameters to the callee (Perl):
    1. Environment variables. If you can set them in PHP before calling system, you ought to be able to retrieve them in Perl using $ENV{Env_var_name}, replacing "Env_var_name" with whatever environment variable you want to read. This seems the safest to me for simple use.
    2. Command-line arguments. If in PHP you run "system ' arg0 arg1 arg2'", then Perl will have the arguments in @ARGV. $ARGV[0] eq 'arg0' && $ARGV[1] eq 'arg1', etc. Be careful if any of your arguments have spaces or shell-special characters like quotes, pipes- unless PHP has a form of "system" that takes care of those for you. Perl's "system" will do so, if you pass "system" a list or array instead of a string/scalar, but I don't know about PHP, and you are calling "system" from PHP.
    3. Pipe the data into Perl. A quick scan of PHP documentation says to do something like this:
      $handle = popen('','w'); fwrite($handle,"here is some input\n"); fwrite($handle,"more input\n"); # etc.... pclose($handle);
      and then in Perl you can read it like:
      while (<STDIN>) { # Do something with the line we just read }
    4. Some mutually agreed upon data store: a file, a database, shared-memory cache, etc. Need to be careful about handing the right data to the right process, if there's any chance of there being multi-process, and also careful about data lifetime- cleaning up old values, but not too soon. I won't go into the details here.
HTML Parser strange Null Character in data

    Iím stuck, Iíve been trying to clean up my mistakes and I have a few I just canít seem to figure out. Maybe Iím too close, but I decided an extra set of eyes may be just what I need.

    I have written a script that will monitor the output of a database that is pushed to a website. Iím just scraping the site and then parsing the table. This is where I seem to run into a problem. First the site can take a little while to respond every now and then. This will shut down the script; I may have the solved with the goto statement. But, if there is a better way, Iím always willing to learn. Next either the data I get or the way I parse the table is putting a (? Space, Null, non-printable characterÖ..something It looks like the degree symbol followed by a middle dot į∙ ?) in front of the incident number only. Every now and then another column will have this happen and shutdown the script.. Iíve tried everything I can think of to the point of pulling out my hair. Now Iím just taking shots in the dark hoping something will hit. This will create a problem with naming and saving and recalling the file.

    BTW Iím not a developer; Iím just dangerous with a little bit of knowledge of Perl. So that being said I have a lot of gaps in my knowledge but Iím willing to learn.
