Increaing a field size for a recordby Thomas Kennll (Acolyte)
|on Oct 16, 2012 at 12:13 UTC||Need Help??|
Thomas Kennll has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I wanted to increase all records field size in a file..for eg) if i have a file like rij1
Currently the 2nd field has 11 characters, ie 1232123456
I want to increase the character size to 50, ie append the remaining with spaces.. result "1232123456(39 spaces) --> Total count should be 50 for this field " can someone help here..
Update: Thank You all for your help!! :)
I have a problem as the field are not necessarily field seperated.. If I could insert 39 spaces from postion 15 or from 15th character on all records will do.. Can anyone help.. Thanks again!!
