to visualize your data structures, Tutorials
-> particularly the topics on hashes of arrays (HoAs), The split
function and Text::Table
to format your textual data are some of the things you can look into to get this job done...
The general steps involved can be as follow:
- loop through your data file.
- split each line into a key and a value.
- push into the HoA the values referenced by the key.
- Loop through your HoA to print the lines or use Text::Table to align table columns neatly
You may also need to deal with missing values and make sure that all your records are five-attributes long...
Excellence is an Endeavor of Persistence.
