in reply to Printing Fixed Width Strings and Spliting String into Multiple Lines

Hey Cheesgui, thanks for the reply, I'll give that a try.


Hey oko1, also thanks for the reply. That looks pretty simple to do, I'll definatly give that a try and see how it goes... Thanks.


Hello GrandFather, thanks for the knowledge! I know it was a little messy but it was more or less just a test script that I wrote on the fly just to see how it would work... But I will take your fixes and add them before I transfer it over to the actual script.
You said don't call subs using '&'... Is that just an older way of doing it?
Also, what do you mean by "Don't use prototype subs"..?


Again, thanks everybody for your suggestions!

Thanks,
Matt

    Don't use my solution if you just have to print the data. I measured the time and it is slower than doing it with substr.
      Ok cool, no problem... Thanks for the follow-up.


      Thanks,

      In the context of anything to do with file I/O the differences you may have measured are likely to be completely irrelevant. Even for lakh (105) lines is the difference likely to be more than a second?

      Benchmarking stuff is often fun, but seldom relevant and very seldom a good reason to prefer one technique over another. It is generally better to make the code clear and maintainable even if there is a small execution speed penalty.

      True laziness is hard work
