in thread Sorting unique values in file using perl

my $file1="file1.txt"; open FILE1, "<$file1" or die $!; my $file2="min_viols_endpointSorted.csv"; open FILE2, ">$file2" or die $!; while(<FILE1>){ my $path = $_; $path =~ /([^\s]+)/; $path = $1; #Extracting path chop($path); my $slack = $_; $slack =~ /[^\f+][\s+][\f+][\s+][\f+][\s+]([\f+]+)[\s](VIOLATED)/; $slack = $1; print "$slack\n"; chop($slack); print FILE2 "$path $slack\n"; }

After this I plan to read the csv into a hash and compare the values of hash keys. If one hash value for a duplicate key is less than previous value than put it in a output file. And output should be unique, as I have shown in my question. Please help on this.

    $path =~ /([^\s]+)/; $path = $1; #Extracting path ... $slack =~ /[^\f+][\s+][\f+][\s+][\f+][\s+]([\f+]+)[\s](VIOLATED)/; $slack = $1;

    You shouldn't use the results of a regular expression unless you verify that the pattern matched or you may get erroneous results.    Also /([^\s]+)/ is usually written as /(\S+)/ and /[^\f+][\s+][\f+][\s+][\f+][\s+]([\f+]+)[\s](VIOLATED)/ matches a single character that is not a FORM FEED or '+' character, followed by a whitespace or '+' character, followed by a FORM FEED or '+' character, etc., but there are no FORM FEED characters in the string.



    chop($path); ... chop($slack);

    chop removes the last character of the string, no matter what it is.    So what is the purpose of removing the last character from $path or $slack?
