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

I have only been learning Perl for less than 2 weeks. I am a C++ programmer.

I have attached a portion of the data below. The data is in file1.txt. I would like to move the data from file1.txt to file2.txt. But, I only want to keep the numbers.

Eg: I want row 1 to look like this:

1 1549367 11 8 3 11 0 -12.00 6.00 -0.25 -3.00 0.00 -1.67 -12.00 6.00 -0.64

Instead of this:

1 Chr26 1549367 11 GGGGGGGAAGA 8 3 Transition 11 0 -12.00 6.00 -0.25 -3.00 0.00 -1.67 -12.00 6.00 -0.64

This is what I have done so far (file1.txt will be in @ARGV):

open FILE2, "+>file2.txt" or die "Cant not open file2.txt!"; my $line; while($line = readline(ARGV)) { print FILE2 $line; }

The code above only copies content of file1.txt (ARGV) into file2.txt.

I tried to use ‘seek’ and ‘tell()’ but, to solve my problem above but, I got confused :(

I also tried this:

Open(FILE, “file1.txt”) @theFile = <FILE>;

This puts every row in the array @the File. But, I can I now modify the elements of one row? (I’m still a novice Perl programmer)

Thank you for your help
