Parsing data into an Array of Hashesby nimdokk (Vicar)
|on Sep 18, 2003 at 12:44 UTC||Need Help??|
nimdokk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm seeking some guidance here. I have reports that I would like to parse into hashes to make for easier access of the data. The raw data would look like this:
Field1= a value,Field2= another value, Field3= yet another value
(note these would all be one long line)
This would be one entry in the raw data file, each entry ends with a newline. It looks to me like an array of hashes. I know that I need to first split the line based on the comma. Then take and split each key=value pair and feed it into a hash. I don't really have any sample code to display at the moment. I'm mainly looking for suggestions on how to do the data manipulations of this kind.
Thanks in advance.
