in thread split function

I don't think split function is an issue. it's something related when I tried to read a file. it only read the line up to length = 51 and then it will continue to read on the nextline. I already checked the file, there is no newline in the file.

    The datafile

    1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10;11;12;13;14;15;16;17;18;19;20;21;22;23;24;25;26;27;28;29;30;31;32;33;34;35;36

    1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10;11;12;13;14;15;16;17;18;19;20;21;22;23;24;25;26;27;28;29;30;31;32;33;34;35;36

    1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10;11;12;13;14;15;16;17;18;19;20;21;22;23;24;25;26;27;28;29;30;31;32;33;34;35;36

    1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10;11;12;13;14;15;16;17;18;19;20;21;22;23;24;25;26;27;28;29;30;31;32;33;34;35;36

    sub split_the_element{ my ($local_fh) = @_; while (<$local_fh>) { chomp; my $size = length $_; print "size $size\n"; foreach my $element (split ';', $_) { printf $fhout "%s,\n", $element; } }
    However, the line get chop after the lengh is >= 51. Is there any workaround which can read the full line?

      The data file is not in code tags

      The code doesn't do anything (it doesn't run)

      Your data file has some "hidden control characters" that mess up the line by line reading. The data lines that you present are not what the actual data is. Its just that simple.

      Create this data file yourself by manually typing it in with vi or notepad or whatever plain text editor that you normally use and you will see that the code works. Don't use copy-and-paste as that would copy these "invisible" wrong characters.
