Hey Guys

Another glorious day in scripting heaven, when all of a sudden a wild request appears. I need to create a script that checks two files together that have the same name but a different extension. i.e. (*.in) and (*.out)

So far I have managed to get the information I need from the *.in file but I have no idea how to check it against the information in the .out file.

Also I need to check that the file names(without the extension match)

This is my code so far:
use strict; my @files = <*.in>; for my $file (@files) { open my $read, '<', $file; open my $write, '>', "$file.log"; my $scid; my @lines; while(<$read>) { @lines = split('', $_); if($. == 3) { $scid = substr $_, 72,6; print $write "$scid\n"; } } #check where files match close($read); }
At the moment it only prints the unique identifier from the *.in the file to a seperate file to check that this is correct. The identifier is A00000 (one alpha 5 numeric) and is the 72nd bit offset from the 4th line, in the *.in file. However is 2nd line in and the 28th bit across in the *.out file. Please help!

    With lots of assumptions...
    use warnings; use strict; use File::Basename qw(fileparse); use File::Slurp qw(slurp); for my $fin (glob '*.in') { my $fout = (fileparse($fin, qr/\.in/))[0] . '.out'; my @ins = slurp($fin); my @outs = slurp($fout); my $id_in = (split /\s+/, $ins [3])[5]; my $id_out = (split /\s+/, $outs[1])[4] . '0'; if ($id_in eq $id_out) { print "match\n"; } else { print "no match\n"; } }

      This seems like a good place to use Tie::File instead of File::Slurp since you only need the first few lines of the files.

    Please provide sample data to work with, your description is very unclear.

      And from the .out file:

      As you can see 4 lines down(or this case right next the + on the 5 line here) you can see the id A04402 (the additional zero is a separate flag) and in the .out file second line down (the i one the first is intentional) 28 bits across is the id there A04402) I need to make sure these match. In this case both files are called and CLF17936.out
