in reply to Re: comparing file contents
in thread comparing file contents

I have read that i can use hash to store the text files and can use compare function to check the file contents. use::compare checks files on the whole and does not perform word by word comparison

    So show us some code you have tried and tell us what isn't working for you. A very small amount of sample data, actual output and expected output will help a lot too.

    True laziness is hard work

      I have two files namely ICD-Codes-text which is tab format and other file named female.txt which has been split word by word . i need to compare the contents of female1.txt to ICD-codes file 0th array values. If there is a match then the matched value in female1.txt should be replaced with ICD-code files corresponding 1st array value. I am a beginner in PERL. I tried to write some code but i do not know where am going wrong or its completely wrong. Help me with this please

      #!/usr/bin/perl print "reading 'ansvarig_vardenhet_utf8.txt'\n"; open(WIN, "icd-10-codes.txt"); while($line = <WIN>) { @columns = split(/\t/, $line); #print "$columns[1]"; foreach my $value (@columns) { #print "$value\n" } } close(WIN); print "reading 'ansvarig_vardenhet_utf8.txt'\n"; open(IN, "female1.txt"); while($line = <IN>) { %col = split(/ /, $line); #print "$columns[1]\n"; foreach my $val (%col) { if($val == $columns[0]){ $val =~ s/$val/$columns[1]/g; print IN ">>$val\n"; } } } close(IN);

      file samples

      ICD.codes-text z988 Z98.8 - Andra specificerade postoperativa tillstånd z99 Z99 - Beroende av maskinella och andra hjälpmedel som ej klassificeras annorstädes z990 Z99.0 - Beroende av aspirationshjälpmedel z991 Z99.1 - Beroende av respirator z992 Z99.2 - Beroende av njurdialys z993 Z99.3 - Beroende av rullstol z998 Z99.8 - Beroende av annan specificerad utrustning och andra specificerade hjälpmedel z999 Z99.9 - Beroende av icke specificerade maskinella och andra hjälpmedel

      female1.txt

      patient has been admitted to the hospital for having infection on the recently operated right leg. w0609 w0609 w0609 w0609 w0609 w0609

        Please look at how your file samples appear to the rest of us; with no line breaks, we cannot tell what should be on line one of the file, vs line two, etc.

        Then, please edit your post so that lines of data do not all run together.

        If you cannot edit the post, (because you did not log in when you posted it), then add another post with just the two data files.

        When you post anything on this site, there is a notice, in bold, directly below the "preview" button:

        Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
        (The notice does not appear then you edit an existing post, but probably *should* appear.)

        We want to help you. You just are not giving us all the information we need to help you.
