in thread writing report using format

I have looked at perlform and I will look at the other two. My main problem is how do I incorporate my print results from the main code into the "format" portion of the code? In other words, how do i get my results to actually print under the indicated format? Thanks.

    Here is an example you might find useful:

    use strict; use warnings; # Formats my ($crt, $text, $num); format = @< @<<<<<<<< @###.## $crt, $text, $num . format STDOUT_TOP = @||||||||||||||||||||| "Example Format" ---------------------- Nr Text Number -- -------- -------- . my $total = 0; format RAPORT_TOTAL = ---------------------- @###.## $total ---------------------- . # End formats while (<DATA>) { s /[\n|\r]//g; # clean ($crt, $text, $num) = split(/;/, $_, 3); $total += $num; write(); } # Change format $~ = "RAPORT_TOTAL"; write(); __DATA__ 1;some data;123.34 2;other;432.54 3;testing;123.55
