in reply to print datafields separated by tab

Hi bandya,

It looks as though your fieldnames have newlines embedded at the end.

If this is the case,what you want to do is

for (@fieldname){ chomp; # see perldoc -f chomp print "$_\t"; }

though it would be better to chomp fieldname when you put it into @fieldname.

Alternatively, combine the chomp with allolex's join method, and use

print join "\t", map { chomp; $_ }  @fieldname;

hope this helps
