I have a string like "ATCGGCGCCTAT" consisting of four 3-letter words (ATC,GGC,GCC,TAT). I am interested to
count the number and the kinds of letters (A,T,G,C) at 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions of these four words. I am a beginner
in perl programming. I shall be glad if any perl monk can help me by providing the syntax/perl code that can count
letters and their kinds in 1st, 2nd and 3rd position of 3-letter words. Separate scalar variable may be used for each
position and letter. For instance, for the 1st position the scalar variables may be $A1, $T1, $G1 and $C1.
Similarly, for 2nd the scalar variables may be $A2,$T2,$G2,$C2 and for 3rd position $A3,$T3,$G3 and $C3.
print" Letters at 1st position:\n
A1=$A1; T1=$T1; G1=$G1; C1=$C1; \n
Letters at 2nd position:\n
A2=$A2; T2=$T2; G2=$G2; C2=$C2; \n
Letters at 3rd position:\n
A3=$A3; T3=$T3; G3=$G3; C3=$C3; \n";
Expected results are:
The result of counting from the string should look like:
Letters at 1st position:
A1=1; T1=1; G1=2; C1=0;
Letters at 2nd position:
A2=1; T2=1; G2=1; C2=1;
Letters at 3rd position:
A3=0; T3=1; G3=0; C3=3;
