in reply to Reading a text file and formatted printing


you will need to of course to open() the file and read through it, here is open file and read through it 101...

open FH, "</path/to/myfilename" or die "cannot open myfilename $!\n"; while (<FH>) { # process each line which is stored in this example in $_ print $_; }

Since you want to print in columns, I suspect you will profit from learing about split() and printf() (or sprintf() )

have fun!
