in reply to Concatenate every 5 lines of input with a comma.

Did you already check perlvar?

Look for $. and $\.

But I wonder how you produce values separated with ; (semicolon), when you used , (comma) in your code? ;))

Update: example added:

#!/usr/bin/perl # vi:ts=4 sw=4 et: use strict; use warnings; while ( <DATA> ) { chomp; local $\ = $. % 5 ? ";" : "\n"; print; } __DATA__ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

    As a one-liner:
    perl -ple'$\ = $.%5 ? ";" : $/' infile > outfile

    In-place:

    perl -i.bak -ple'$\ = $.%5 ? ";" : $/' file

    If it wasn't a one-liner, I wouldn't use $\

    while ( <DATA> ) { chomp; print $_, $.%5 ? ";" : $/; }
