perllearner007 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello. I have a text file(tab-delim) with some gene names as shown below.
BRCA1:breast cancer 1, early onset
TNF: tumor necrosis factor
OMG:oligodendrocyte myelin glycoprotein
I would like to get the list of gene name BRCA1,TNF,OMG that is before the colon(:) . How do I parse in perl this text file with this list of genes?
