Console Output Formatting Help Requiredby tarunmudgal4u (Sexton)
|on Sep 27, 2013 at 07:06 UTC||Need Help??|
tarunmudgal4u has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I want some help regarding console output formatting. As of now, I'm using print function rather printf. I don't know if printf can solve my problem.
I'm printing some informative message e.g "installing LUA.." and once this task gets over, based on the status, I print "done" or "failed". Now, the issue is, this done/failed status message is printed in scattered way (as first print size varies as per informative message length). How can I print all done/failed in one column from top to bottom (or if writing it to right side of console possible regardless of left side message size)?
Below is the output snippet I get as of now -
Below is the output I'm looking for -
Please let me know your suggestions.
