I'm a total newbie, not just to perl but to any form of scripting.
I'm trying to create a script which will take a text file that I have and run through it, changing bits here and there eg. on a line that starts with HEADER I want a number appended; I want an entire line inserted just before a line which starts with REMARK; and many other things.
So my question: is perl able to do this, or do I need to seek out another language/tool/something?
like I said...total newbie! Any words of wisdom greatly appreciated!
