in thread Separate column results?!

update: I've changed it to the following:
print "\n$columns[0]\t$columns[1]";
works fine now :) however there is a blank space between the lines the chomp function doesn't seem to work?
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $PHONE_FILE = 'phones.txt'; open(PHONE_FILE, $PHONE_FILE) or die "Can't open file: $!\n"; my @lines = <PHONE_FILE>; foreach $_ (@lines) { my @columns = split('\t', $_); my $col1 = $columns[0]; my $col2 = $columns[1]; chomp $col1; chomp $col2; print "\n$columns[0]\t$columns[1]"; }

    i got it to work :)
    foreach $_ (@lines) { my @columns = split('\t', $_); chomp @columns; my $col1 = $columns[0]; my $col2 = $columns[1]; chomp $col1; chomp $col2; print "\n$columns[0]\t$columns[1]"; }

      Or perhaps:

      use feature ":5.14"; use warnings FATAL => qw(all); use strict; my @lines = split /\n/, << 'END'; 111 aaa bbb 222 ccc ddd 333 eee fff END say join "\t", @{[split]}[0,1] for @lines;


      111	aaa
      222	ccc
      333	eee

[sierpinski]: I've never seen $#$var before.
[LanX]: $list cops be an array ref
[LanX]: could
[LanX]: $#array gives the length
[LanX]: no sorry ...
[sierpinski]: so that would just be deferencing it...
[LanX]: the last index!
[LanX]: yes
[sierpinski]: yeah I guess $list is a reference.. yeah
[sierpinski]: why is it the last index and not the first? because the length of the array becomes the index?
