in reply to Infinite regex loop...

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Your code is probably not doing what you want it to do, but there is no looping of any kind except for the file processing. Once that's done your code would finish.

How exactly are you trying to process the file? I could point out probable flaws in your current code, but it would be more effective if you explained your goal before we start trying to decipher your intent.

    The file is a list. SPECint_base and SPECfp_base are headers. When it finds one or the other, its respective valid variable becomes true. It should not store the header in its respective hash. When it loops through, unless $_ is one of the headers, it should be put in whichever hash.

      I might understand what you want, but try making an example. Show us a fake data file in the format that your using and then state what should be the resultant data structures after processing.

      I know what I mean. Why don't you?

[PriNet]: i think i found the problem, the "source" array that sets the individual key values isn't being cleared, it's keeping the previous values...
[atcroft]: PriNet: You might consider posting a small, self-contained snippet of that segment of your code, and see if someone else has a better idea.....
[atcroft]: PriNet: Ahhh... interesting.
[PriNet]: small would be a problem *heh*... the program reads all the lines from a pdf and converts the individual colum data to a seperate key/value pair... that's where the "previous" array from the pdf is not being cleared properly before reading the next pdf
[atcroft]: PriNet: It was a thought....
[PriNet]: thanx... actually just having someone to talk to was making me think... *heh*
[PriNet]: a regular array would just be "delete @array" correct? no need for the post "()" ?
