Re: repeat data at one line and grep as pre-set format

in reply to repeat data at one line and grep as pre-set format

I think you want to split each pair of data points out to a line on its own instead of having multiple datapoints on one line.

cat yourfile.txt | perl -ple 's/(\S+\s+\S+)\s+/$1\n/g'

should do this for you as long as you have even numbers of datapoints on each line

echo "00000001 99888 00000011 99889 00000002 99890 00000003 998 +08" \ | perl -ple 's/(\S+\s+\S+)\s+/$1\n/g' 00000001 99888 00000011 99889 00000002 99890 00000003 99808

Cheers,

    cat yourfile.txt | perl -ple 's/(\S+\s+\S+)\s+/$1\n/g'

    Isn't that the same as:

    perl -ple 's/(\S+\s+\S+)\s+/$1\n/g' yourfile.txt

    UUOC.

      You are right and your way is more efficient too. I wrote it with the cat file | as that is how I tested it with echo, just failed to engage my brain completely :-)

      Cheers,
