casperdaghost has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Oh fellow seekers of wisdom..We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.....
The code below breaks up the @stat_array into fours and then prints out fields in to an HTML table wih the OCOMsg2 cell in red - again - just one cell of the emailed table. print Dumper @stat_array_rows; sleep 1; exit; The boss told me that he wants the WHOLE LINE with the OCOMsg2 in red - so the array below, all the elements - "ibfarm102 - localtick", 'New York", "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong", "OCOMsg2" need to be red. print Dumper @stat_array_rows; sleep 1; exit; Is there a way to do this with out rewriting the whole block - I really like this block..

@stat_array = ("ibfarm102 - localtick", "Boston" , "hibmis100 - proc +HKHD2 - Hongkong", "PidMonRsp", "eufarm102 - localtick", "London", "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong +" , "PidMonReq" , "ibfarm102 - localtick", "New York" , "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongk +ong", "PidMonRsp", "ibfarm102 - localtick", 'New York", "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongko +ng", "OCOMsg2"); my @stat_array_rows = @stat_array; while (my @stat_array_rows = splice(@stat_array_rows, 0 , 4)) { print MAIL "<tr>\n"; for my $stat_row(@stat_array_rows) { #if ($stat_row eq $config_msgtype){ if ($stat_row =~/OCAlive2/){ print MAIL "<td><font color=red>$stat_row[0]</font></td>\n"; } else { print MAIL "<td>$stat_row</td>\n"; } } print MAIL "</tr>\n"; }

this are the results of the block:

<tr> <td>ibfarm102 - localtick </td> <td> Boston</td> <td> hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong </td> <td>PidMonRsp</td> </tr> <tr> <td>eufarm102 - localtick </td> <td>London</td> <td> hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong </td> <td>PidMonReq</td> </tr> <tr> <td>ibfarm102 - localtick </td> <td>New York</td> <td> hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong </td> <td>PidMonRsp</td> </tr> <tr> <td>ibfarm102 - localtick </td> <td>New York</td> <td> hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong </td> <td>OCOMsg2</td> </tr>

this is the data Dumper

print Dumper @stat_array $VAR1 = [ 'ibfarm102 localtick', ' Greenwich', ' hibmis100 procHKHD2 Hongkong ', 'PidMonRsp' ]; print Dumper @stat_array_rows. $VAR1 = 'ibfarm102 localtick'; $VAR2 = ' Greenwich'; $VAR3 = ' hibmis100 procHKHD2 Hongkong '; $VAR4 = 'PidMonRsp';

    And what are the results that you want (html)?

    Just move the condition outside the loop; if you know what member of a row to test, test just that (i.e. $stat_array_rows[2], otherwise you can use grep. Your code is buggy: why do you use $stat_row[0], when the only stat_row variable is a scalar? Use strict and warnings!

    The best way to get "red," etc. is with a CSS stylesheet. Let the Perl script output the data without regard to how it looks, but adding "class=" if necessary.

    As you loops through your data, you need to determine if a given row contains the "OCOMsg2" field you're looking for, and if it does write out the following:

    <tr style="color: red;">

    Otherwise, just write out a plain tr tag with no style attribute. You need to do this before splitting the row into individual parts - or else use join to put them back together in order to do the check. Something like this:

    use strict; my @stat_array = ( "ibfarm102 - localtick", "Boston" , "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong", "PidMonRsp", "eufarm102 - localtick", "London", "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong", "PidMonReq", "ibfarm102 - localtick", "New York", "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong", "PidMonRsp", "ibfarm102 - localtick", "New York", "hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong", "OCOMsg2" ); while (my @group_of_4 = splice(@stat_array, 0 , 4)) { my $rowstring = join(' ', @group_of_4); if ($rowstring =~ /OCOMsg2/) { print MAIL "<tr style=\"color: red;\">\n"; } else { print MAIL "<tr>\n"; } for my $data (@group_of_4) { print MAIL "<td>$data</td>\n"; } print MAIL "</tr>\n"; }

    I get this output:

    <tr> <td>ibfarm102 - localtick</td> <td>Boston</td> <td>hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong</td> <td>PidMonRsp</td> </tr> <tr> <td>eufarm102 - localtick</td> <td>London</td> <td>hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong</td> <td>PidMonReq</td> </tr> <tr> <td>ibfarm102 - localtick</td> <td>New York</td> <td>hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong</td> <td>PidMonRsp</td> </tr> <tr style="color: red;"> <td>ibfarm102 - localtick</td> <td>New York</td> <td>hibmis100 - procHKHD2 - Hongkong</td> <td>OCOMsg2</td> </tr>

    If that's not what you want - hopefully it's enough to get you going in the right direction.
