Array searching, grep, firstby jimbus (Friar)
|on Sep 01, 2005 at 17:16 UTC||Need Help??|
jimbus has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
when looping through a list of filenames, I need to see is which element of an array of lines from a CSV file it is and append a couple values to it.
I was thinking of preprocessing the array, parsing the info I need from each line and creating a hash of the substring and the original string, then I could do a direct lookup to modify the original line and walk the keys to regenerate the file. but I was thinking there had to be a more direct way of doing it
I looked at grep and first, but it returns the values and not the element number.
