( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello monks
I have some data from a config file parameter that is delimited by a pipe symbol |
At each pipe symbol, I need to split it into a new line. Here is what I have so far:
use Config::Simple; my $cfg = new Config::Simple('/path/to/.file.ini'); $cfg = Config::Simple->import_from('/path/to/.file.ini', \%Config); my $description = $cfg->param("$ARGV[0]".".description"); my (@new) = split (/\|/, $description, -1); print @new;
It is not making each pipe a new line. Does it have something to do with the limit number I passed to split? I thought negative would allow for as many possbile fields to be produced?
Thanks, PerlSufi

    [Cosmic37]: I'm wondering whether there is a specific/(or at least "usual") command or does one take a copy before undefining and then copy it back after slurping file into a string?
    [BarApp]: I need help accessing perl files. I need permission!!!
    [Cosmic37]: I wish thee a peachy life and express gratitude for considering my pathetic questions
    [erix]: record separator
    [Cosmic37]: Permissions are interesting earthlings. Did nature determine who gives permission and who asks permission. Who was the first to get permission? Are you not related to them as one big earthling family?
