( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

How about just parsing the whole thing, and afterward using those fields you're interested in, and simply ignore the rest?

use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; my %states; while (<DATA>) { chomp; if (/^ ([^:]+) : \s+ (.*)/x) { $states{$1} = $2; } } use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \%states; __DATA__ Controller Status: Optimal NCQ status: Enabled Status of logical device: Optimal Power State: RPM Supported Power State: RPM, Powered off


$VAR1 = { 'Supported Power State' => 'RPM, Powered off', 'Power State' => 'RPM', 'NCQ status' => 'Enabled', 'Status of logical device' => 'Optimal', 'Controller Status' => 'Optimal' };

So all the interesting (and some of the uninteresting) data is in %states.

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;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
