in thread to copy certain content in file & repeat it .

Hi, the code you posted does not compile, part of asking a question effectively, is to make sure your code compiles before posting.


while(<FH>){ ...

This reads from a file until it reaches the end. Filehandles are iterators. Once you reach the end, the subsequent while(<FH>) loop will not be entered


@arr =$_;

This sets @arr to the value of $_; It doesn't add values to @arr, for that you need the push function

    i m rewriting the current code here i m printing the give n part but i want it in between.
    use warnings; use strict; my $fg=0; my $i=0; open(FF ,"lib"); open (FF1,>lib1"); while(<FF>) { my $lin =$_; print FF1 $lin; if ($lin=~m/pattern to be patched for stat copying/) { $fg=1; } if ($fg) { $lin=$_; my @arr =$lin[$i]; $i++; } if($lin=~m/pattern where to stop copying & repeating/) { $fg=0; } } if ($fg==0) { for (my $j=0;$j<$i;$j++) { print FF1 @arr[$j]; } }
    i want to actuaaly print the given para in between here using these script i am print @ end of file.
        i am not using push because my file is very huge around 400 lines so i dont want to run out of mem and also i am not using any module .. so if you can write the certain part where i am making mistake.
