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

I hope your script is well designed with subroutines to do the difficult tasks ;-). In that case you probably have a subroutine to generate a row of the html table. Then you just need to insert the following code (adapted to your circumstances, $x has a different name in your script):

$opcode=$x->{opcode}; while (@{$x->{subfields}}) { @params= splice(@{$x->{subfields}},0,5); generate_html_row($opcode,@params); $opcode=''; }

Beware, this changes your datastructure. if you can't have that, make a copy of @{$x->{subfields}} and loop over the copy

If you don't have that subroutine it should be easy to extract the relevant code and make it one. Ok, you could do the same inline, but readability is much better with subroutines for distinct tasks

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.
