in reply to extracting data from a file

moving each word in to a variable that too dynamically creating it during the run time is not possible by the best of knowledge i know

but u can dump it in to an hash which will create key value same as that of characters b/w " "

hope this code might help u

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Data::Dumper; open ( FH ,'<' , 'D:\\myperlpgm\\nperl\\newfile.txt'); my %has; my @array; while(<FH>){ @array = split /"/; } print "@array\n"; for(@array){ $has{$_} = $_ ; } print Dumper ($has{ssss});

D:\\myperlpgm\\nperl\\newfile.txt contains -> "nithn""nnnn""ssss" data

    What is the hash for?

    And take a closer look at what's in @array. By changing "print "@array\n"; to "print Dumper @array;", you will see that @array contains extra elements that result from splitting on the quote character as if it were a simple delimiter rather than a balanced construct.

    Also, given the OP's data set, there's no reason for the $hash{ssss} element to even exist.

    This is a broken solution.

[SuicideJunkie]: We are certainly vastly more educated and wealthy. Raw intelligence is much more difficult to measure.
[james28909]: exactly. i think the question that should be asked is, where will intelligence take us.
