When I first saw the Perl format thing, I thought it would be very cool. Well as it turns out, using printf() is usually far better for any kind of normal report.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @stuff = qw( large 90.12 small 12.34 medium 57.78 super 75.0 ); print "# Name Price\n", "# ---- -----\n"; while (my ($name,$price) = splice (@stuff,0,2)) { printf "%10s %8.2f\n", $name, $price; } __END__ Prints: # Name Price # ---- ----- large 90.12 small 12.34 medium 57.78 super 75.00

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
