in reply to Split of text

Here is a little code segment to get you started:

while(<DATA>){ my $date; $date = $1 if s/(\d+\.\d+\.\d+)\s*//; my $ccy; $ccy = $1 if s/([a-z]+)\s*//i; print "Date=$date, Currency=$ccy, Rest=$_\n" if $date && $ccy; }

assuming you have your data in the DATA segment. Dealing with processing the remaing fields is left as an exercise. You might want to consider splitting on semicola...

[Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
[jedikaiti]: Hi Monks
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Well, if you want to use only parts of a line for the key, see split or whatever other mechanism to extract the key from the line
[Corion]: Hi jedikaiti!
[Cosmic37]: is there a webpage for full CB for this chat rather than side panel chat?
