in reply to Array problems.....

This problem is better solved with a hash structure.

The algorithm would be:

  • Open the file
  • In a loop, read the input
  • chomp, then split the input on white space
  • use the last field as a hash key, and "push" the first field into the HOA (Hash-of-Arrays) structure (Please research HOA at this site)
  • End loop (Keep reading till you have all info)
  • Loop through the collected hash structure, and print the info
Let us know if you have a specific issue with your implementation of this algorithm.
