in reply to Regex to extract certain lines only from command output/text file.

Hi

I have taken another approach to what I think you are trying to do. Hopefully you can use this to achieve what you want.

use strict; use warnings; my @tmp; my @keep; my $first_time = 1; while (my $a_line = <DATA>) { chomp $a_line; push @tmp, $a_line; if ( $a_line =~ /^\d+\s+\D+/ ) { if ($first_time) { $first_time = 0; } else { #we have a new host master record #process the data from the previous host process_previous(\@tmp); @keep = (@keep, @tmp); @tmp =(); } } } process_previous(\@tmp); @keep = (@keep, @tmp); @tmp=(); print "$_\n" for @keep; exit(0); #----------------- SUBS ---------------------------- sub process_previous { my $array_ref = shift; my $keep_this_data = 0; foreach my $elem(@$array_ref) { if ($elem !~ /\d:\d:\d$/ ) { $keep_this_data = 1; last; } } if (!$keep_this_data) { #empty the array @$array_ref = (); } } __DATA__ 7 hostname12 Generic-legacy 10000000AB210ACF6 --- 10000000AB210ACF4 2:5:4 10000000AB210ACF4 2:3:4 10000000AB210ACF6 3:5:4 9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 10000000AB2A30068 2:5:2 23 srvernam Generic-legacy 5001438002A3004A 3:3:3 5001438002A3004A --- 5001438002A30048 2:3:3 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 10000000AB2A30068 2:5:2 21 HOSTNAME Generic 9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 10000000AB2A30068 2:5:2

output

7 hostname12 Generic-legacy 10000000AB210ACF6 --- 10000000AB210ACF4 2:5:4 10000000AB210ACF4 2:3:4 10000000AB210ACF6 3:5:4 23 srvernam Generic-legacy 5001438002A3004A 3:3:3 5001438002A3004A --- 5001438002A30048 2:3:3 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 21 HOSTNAME Generic

I hope this helps.

    Check your script, the output indicated in your post is really different to what your code really shows. Below is the output of your script:

    7 hostname12 Generic-legacy 10000000AB210ACF6 --- 10000000AB210ACF4 2:5:4 10000000AB210ACF4 2:3:4 10000000AB210ACF6 3:5:4 9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 5001438002A3004A --- 5001438002A30048 2:3:3 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 10000000AB2A30068 2:5:2 21 HOSTNAME Generic
    According, to the OP,
    9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 10000000AB2A30068 2:5:2
    Is not suppose to be shown in the final output. Your script even modified some info. like this:
    9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 5001438002A3004A --- 5001438002A30048 2:3:3 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 5001438002A30048 2:5:2 9 hostname13 Generic 10000000AB2A3006A 3:5:2 10000000AB2A30068 2:5:2
    The OP has only one "9 hostname13 Generic", so how did it become two, in the final output.

      Hi,

      In response to: The OP has only one "9 hostname13 Generic", so how did it become two, in the final output.

      I added an extra one in the __DATA__ section, for testing purposes. Only one was showing in the output (the last one in __DATA__ , due to an empty line at the end of the same __DATA__ section.

      (The fix is also posted in one of the replies)

      Thanks.

      Arnaud
