    understanding the hi-fi code

    What code are you calling the hi-fi code?

      @ARGV = glob 'datafile*'; open my $OUTPUT, '>', 'output_file' or die "Cannot open 'output_file' +because: $!"; my %data; while ( <> ) { next unless /^(.+) (\S+)$/; push @{ $data{ $1 } }, $2; } for my $key ( sort keys %data ) { print join ' ', $key, @{ $data{ $key } }, scalar @{ $data{ $key } +}, "columns\n"; }
      ======================== I have files by name datafile1,datafile2,datafile3,datafile4.........datafile200 in a directory. But these files are stored in a a different pattern ...datafile1,datafile10,datafile11,datafile12 and so on. The above program is reading and writing in the same order. I would like to pick data from in the an order from datafile1, 2, 3 to data200. Any suggestions and additions are appreciated. Thank you.
