in reply to Data extraction from text file

So you want to

  • open a file
  • read a series of records from the file (No guaranteed unique field, so perhaps an array of arrays? or an array of hashes might be more suitable)
  • Print a fixed field width record from each array entry.
Have a go at coding that and get back to us with any problems you have with your Perl

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
