Regex Split and Formatting
Just to clear the air.. I'm developing this tool for a friend of mine. When he told me about the problem, usage of modules was the first thing i suggested him to do (By the way, its not his homework too if you guys are wondering..!!). Even he's new to perl and has never used them..
So i thought it would be a challenge to do this without using them. So here i am... I made a lot of mistakes but i got to learn some great new stuff too ...
When you want to install a new door in your house, you dont cut down a tree with an axe. But its also worthwhile to learn something new (say build a door with the basic tools rather than just go out and buy a readymade one.. :) :) )
And thank you all for the posts .. Learning something new everyday .. :)
@Anonymous Monk - I know the feeling. My manager too feels the same way about it ..
