Somehow your parsing code and your data don't seem to be related at all. For example your code checks if the data has 11 columns, but your data only has 5 columns. So no wonder it doesn't work. (Your data sample has 11 interesting rows, but I guess that's more of a coincidence.

I'd approach the problem like this:

use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; while (<DATA>) { # skip separator lines next if /^----/; my @columns = split /\s*\|\s*/; # remove leading space $columns[0] =~ s/^\s+//; # now do something with @columns # you'll want to do something else here, not just # printing to the console say join ',', @columns; } __DATA__ ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| S.No | TimeStamp| UE-Name| Test-Config | UL/DL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 1 | 18:24:38 | -NA- | Sanity_001_0001_10_00 | System | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 2 | 18:31:34 | ueh1 | Sanity_002_0002_00_11 | UL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 3 | 18:23:48 | ueh1 | Sanity_003_0003_06_09 | UL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 3 | 18:23:48 | ueh1 | Sanity_003_0003_06_09 | DL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 4 | 18:38:30 | ueh1 | Sanity_004_0004_24_00 | DL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 5 | -NA- | -NA- | Sanity_001_0001_10_00 | System | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 6 | 18:31:34 | ueh2 | Sanity_002_0002_00_11 | UL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 7 | 18:23:49 | ueh2 | Sanity_003_0003_06_09 | UL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 7 | 18:23:48 | ueh2 | Sanity_003_0003_06_09 | DL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------| 8 | 18:38:30 | ueh2 | Sanity_004_0004_24_00 | DL | ------|----------|--------|-------------------------|--------|

    [SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
    [SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
