(Note: please update your post to include <code>...</code> tags around any code or data. A well-formatted post will increase the likelihood of receiving a useful response)

You would need to do something along the lines of:

  • break each line apart into fields
  • reprint the fields in the new format

Some things you may want to look at might be split, perlre, say, and printf.
