in reply to Printing a specified number of characters

Also, while this isn't a direct print as others have described, more information can be found in perlfaq4 about string padding here using sprintf. (Puts your reformatted string in a variable for later use.)

Good, easy access to all Perl docs and FAQ's can be found here, and excellent tutorials from experienced monks are here on Perl Monks.
