tell

See the current Perl documentation for tell.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


tell - get current seekpointer on a filehandle



tell FILEHANDLE

tell



Returns the current position for FILEHANDLE. FILEHANDLE may be an expression whose value gives the name of the actual filehandle. If FILEHANDLE is omitted, assumes the file last read.

[thepkd]: $aohoaoh ->{'foo'} has to be dereferenced to access its contents right?
[thepkd]: sorry. i mean $aohoaoh[0]
[GotToBTru]: $aohoaoh is an array reference tho
[thepkd]: some guy was suggesting $aohoaoh[0]->{'foo '}[0]->{}. This wouldnt work.
[GotToBTru]: you're mixing notation there I think
[GotToBTru]: $aohoaoh->[0] is a hash reference, so $aohoaoh->[0]->{ key1} would work
[1nickt]: If 1nickt is the some guy, that's not what he said.
[GotToBTru]: thepkd might not know about last hour of cb
[1nickt]: my $x = $aohoaoh->[0]->{' foo'}->[0]->{'bar' }; should work
[thepkd]: its not $aohoaoh->[0]. its $aohoaoh[0]->{'foo '}. Tried it. Its working. Thnaks
