Re^2: Perl noob struggling to loop through an array

    Thanks for such quick responses aitap and jwkrahn,
    I am happy with the way my code cuts up the data but I am having a more fundamental problem with getting the loop to perform as I wish.

    Could you suggest a way of getting the 2 sections of my own code into a single loop (I realise that jwkrahn suggested a slightly different method, and this is very much appreciated) but I would quite like to get my own technique running smoothly as well.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Hi jwkrahn, would you mind putting some comments into your code explaining each section? I am struggling to follow it through. Thanks, microkorg
