brtch has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have some file with lines in this format:
xxx yy yy:yy:yy xxx/xxxxx xxx xxxx xxx xxx
where x is an alphabet, y is a number.
CATCH: The only thing that's standard across the file are the spaces and the / charecter. i.e, the first word can be of 3 or 4 or 5 charecters long.
Can you help me find a perl code that takes each of the strings and compares with strings (i have),i.e, say if the first string in the line == Feb.
