Splitting multiple patternsby astronogun (Sexton)
|on Apr 09, 2012 at 03:33 UTC||Need Help??|
astronogun has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I would like to know how to split multiple patterns or expressions?
For example I have an input file from infos.txt file and I want to split the data there per line
The infos.txt file have the following input:
I want to split the <Tab> or space between the name and the age, and also split the "commas" (,)Here's my code but I'm getting different result:
The output produced like this:
Name: Mawts 25,female,melbourne
Age: Mawts 25
Name: Awts 24,male,sydney
Age: Awts 24
On the result only the "Name" and "Age" has the wrong output but the "Gender" and "Address" is correct. I know there's something wrong with the code but can't figure it out, I tried combining the splitting patterns but gave me blank results only the commas was seen in the result. Hope you could help guys thanks very much..
