Problems with zero filling a number.by dwatson06 (Friar)
|on Jul 15, 2002 at 18:42 UTC||Need Help??|
dwatson06 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to write a set of numbers to a file so that another programmer may reference them. This number needs to be zero filled with 9 digits. I can use the following to print out on the command line...
my $getNumber = 213;
And it prints fine but when I write to file it writes%09d213.
Is there a simple sub included to pad numbers (or zero fill) to a given length?
