slayedbylucifer has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need some regex help. I have a csv where in I want to edit the 35th field. In 35th field, I want to replace the "0" which is in the beginning of the string "and" is followed by 10 digits with "+91" and then write the change back. I do not want the output on the console but want to have it written back to the same file in the same field.
I thought this would have been an easier one with sed/awk but I could not yet make it work. Here is my thread with the sed/awk exploration:
So, Now I am thinking of doing it with perl. Here is one sample input:
So in above line, the number happens to be the 35th field. I want to change it from "01234567899" to "+912234567899".
Please provide your inputs.
