Good point! After a little experimentation, it appears that the following also works:

for my $line (@lines) { my @fields = split ' ', $line; $fields[1] .= ' ' x (50 - length $fields[1]); $line = join(' ', @fields); }

Thanks, nice catch!

[marto]: yay, Depeche Mode at the Barrowlands on Sunday. The best venue in Glasgow for music, despite it's looks :) Also the smallest gig DM will have played in a long time
