in thread Help with fstab

Nvm I solved that problem myself, I was just being stupid :p
Now the problem is that I only want certain information from the fstab, but I print all of the info from fstab.
Any clue on how to only print the information you want?

open FILE, "</mnt/etc/fstab"; my @lines = <FILE>; print @lines;

That's how I extract the information from it

    Dorficus:

    If I recall correctly, /etc/fstab uses whitespace to delimit the fields, so you should be able to do something like:

    open FILE, '<', "/mnt/etc/fstab"; my @lines = <FILE>; for (@lines) { my @fields = split /\s+/, $_; print "First column: $fields[0], Third column: $fields[2].\n"; }

    ...roboticus

    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

      This really helped, it got rid of a lot of unnessecary information, but do you have any clue on how to do it vertical as well?
