in thread Output question


Thanks for you quick response and answer to my question! It now works the way I wanted.

Can you please explain what the 'getc'is??

Also If I wanted to use the 'more' command, where would I put it in my script?? I tried several areas and it didnt work.

    You're welcome...

    For the getc you better read the doc (or follow the link) as it will be more accurate and clear than I could ever be.
    (anyway perldoc and/or SuperSearch and/or the camel book, must now be a a reflex for you Perl lover ;-)

    Now for the use of the more command, just forget about using 'more' IN your script, use it the unix way
    (joining several simple but efficient commands to do a complex task...) via pipe.
    Only display the lines on the screen in your script and then using 'more' for the paging part :

    perl | more
