in reply to Multi Line Matching- getting into csv

Reading this kind of data is best done IMHO by first reading all of the data into an array of hashes (one hash per user) and then print in the desired format. This way you get nice and clean code with one line for each line of your data:

use strict; use warnings; my @data; while(<DATA>){ push @data, { 'user' => $1 } if /^user: (\w+)/; $data[-1]{'summary'} = $1 if /summary\s+"(.+)"/; $data[-1]{'accesslevel'} = $1 if /access-level\s+(\S+)/; $data[-1]{'group'} = $1 if /group\s+(\S+)/; } for my $user (@data){ print join ',', map { $user->{$_} // '' } qw(user summary acce +sslevel group); print "\n"; } __DATA__ user: myus44 [up] ------------ admin-state enabled summary "Johnny Cash" access-level group-defined group mi-group [up] user: jar1543 [up] ------------ admin-state enabled summary "Lara Croft" access-level group-defined group jar-head [up] user: myprivilegeduser [up] ----------- admin-state enabled access-level privileged

[ambrus]: huh... what does "SV" mean there?
[Marshall]: stevieb wish you well with water problems, my water was off all day Monday for repairs. Any more progress on .exe info problem?.
[stevieb]: Marshall: no. I commented on the thread yesterday. Visual Studio updates the tags ok, but corrupts the exe
[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
[Marshall]: I also looked into PerlApp from Active State, but they don't sell their Dev Kit independent of a very expensive ($1,200) per year license anymore.
