ElMagnifico has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Bretheren, I seek your guidance. I have read the scriptures but have not found enlightenment. No doubt the answer is there but I understand not the wisdom. I beg thine assistance. (Ok...I'll cut that out. :p) I have a flat file (with some 185k lines)with values like the following:
I need to do the following:
1) Is a hash the proper structure for what I'm trying to do?
2) If so, how do I get it to do what I'd like?
Thank you in advance for your help. My experience is at the beginner level and I sincerely appreciate your help.
ElMagnifico - I work at it so that maybe one day it'll be true! :-D
