in thread Windows Net Use

Parsing the output of WMIC looks even more difficult , cause its output is very different as compared to net use. So If u could tell me how to parse it or break it into what i need, it would be a great help..

    The suggested code will return the information in CSV format. Save it to a file and use something like Text::CSV to read only the columns you want.

    Update: use something like /output:c:\netuselist.csv to save the file.

    For the human eye it looks more gibberish, but for parsing it is less error prone.

    As marto already pointed out, the best solution is Text::CSV. Since CSV means "comma separated values", the second best is splitting on the commas.

    The first line that WMIC outputs, BTW, contains the field names.
