Counting In a Log File from Multiple Variablesby monger (Friar)
|on Sep 02, 2004 at 15:55 UTC||Need Help??|
monger has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to wrestle with some coding that's new to me. I've been rummaging through log files with Perl for some time, but now I need some more help, so I turn to the Perl Faithful!
Here's a snippet of what I'm looking at:
2004/09/01:10:37:57,cbt54632,192.168.1.253,F - Account Not Registered
This is simulating a function in SAS (which I don't use or know). What I would like to do is read through this file (standard format here), grab each username (here, cbt54632) and count the number of occurrences in the log for the reason listed, here "Account Not Registered".
I looked at 6039, but it didin't quite fit.
Thanks - monger
