in reply to Re: Sorting one column of results
in thread Sorting one column of results

hello choroba, Thank you for replying, I have adjusted the coding to the following but it still does not work?, please help?
my $infile="orders.txt"; my $output2 = 'orders_today.txt'; open (OUT, "+>$output2"); open (FILE, $infile) or die "ERROR: File does not exist\n"; for (<FILE>) { my @text =(); @text = split /\t/,$_; chomp @text; push (@text, $text[0]); push (@text, $text[1]); push (@text,$text[2]); push (@text,$text[3]); { $a->[10] cmp $b->[10] } print map @$_ }

    I assumed you knew more about Perl. My fault. When using a function you do not know yet, consult its documentation.
    Here is what I had in mind:
    #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $infile = 'orders.txt'; my $output = 'orders_today.txt'; open my $IN, '<', $infile or die "ERROR: Cannot open '$infile': $!"; my @out; while (<$IN>) { chomp; my @text = split /\t/; push @out, [@text]; } open my $OUT, '>', $output or die "Cannot open '$output': $!"; print {$OUT} map "@$_\n", sort { $a->[10] cmp $b->[10] } @out;

      hello choroba, Thank you for replying, the coding works however the output is all in one line, even though the split function is in the coding? not sure why? and is it possible to only print the following (as opposed to the entire original file?) print OUT "$text[10]\n$text[11]\nQuantity:$text[12]\n\n$text[16]\n$text[17]\n$text[18]\n$text[19]\n$text[20]\n$text[21]\n$text[22]\n$text[23]\n\n\n"; Thank you so much :)!
        for my $line (sort { $a->[10] cmp $b->[10] } @out) { printf $OUT "%s\n%s\n" . "Quantity:%s\n\n%s\n%s\n%s\n%s\n%s\n%s\n%s\n%s\n\n\n", @$line[10..12], @$line[16..23]; }

[stevieb]: hey, thezip
[perldigious]: I don't miss having to drive up and down in elevation on roads that are iced over, I white knuckled gripping the steering wheel every time I had to where I used to live.
[perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.
MidLifeXis waves.
[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
