in reply to is there a way to display tables?

You should give Text::ASCIITable a try:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Text::ASCIITable; my $table = Text::ASCIITable->new( {headingText => 'Sales per Year'} ); $table->setCols('Year', 'Sales'); $table->alignCol('Sales' => 'right'); $table->setColWidth('Sales' => 10); $table->addRow(2005, 3000.00); $table->addRow(2006, 4000.00); $table->addRow(2007, 3500.00); $table->addRow(2008, 5800.00); $table->addRowLine; $table->addRow('Average',4075.00); print $table;

Output

.-----------------. | Sales per Year | +---------+-------+ | Year | Sales | +---------+-------+ | 2005 | 3000 | | 2006 | 4000 | | 2007 | 3500 | | 2008 | 5800 | +---------+-------+ | Average | 4075 | '---------+-------'

Hope this helps.
