    uh uh! never eard of it ... i remember it was better NOT use formats in perl 5. This modules is safe to use?


    there are no rules, there are no thumbs..

      Perl6::Form is a lot better than format. The usage is a lot easier.
      loris request can be done like so:

      use warnings; use strict; use Perl6::Form; my %name_n_price_tag; print form "#\tName\tPrice", "#\t------ -------"; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my ( $name, $price ) = split /:\s/, $_, 2; $name_n_price_tag{$name} = $price; } print form "\t{|||||}\t{|||||}", $_, $name_n_price_tag{$_}, $/ for sort keys %name_n_price_tag; __DATA__ large: 90.12 small: 12.34 medium: 57.78
      Output:
      # Name Price # ------ ------- large 90.12 medium 57.78 small 12.34
      NOTE however, I don't know how the OP gets it data. This is just a head up using the module Perl6::Form.
      Hope this helps.

      If you tell me, I'll forget.
      If you show me, I'll remember.
      if you involve me, I'll understand.
