in reply to Increaing a field size for a record

Thomas Kennll,

A very simple way to insert spaces is:

my $record = <$fh>; # read the record substr( $record, 15, 0, " " x 39 ); # insert 39 spaces
This will insert 39 spaces after the 15th character. If your counting starting at 1, test that it is going into the correct location :-)

Good Luck!

    Thanks!! But this doesn't seam to be working for me. :( #!/usr/bin/perl open FILE, rij1.dat"; my @lines = <FILE>; foreach my $lin (@lines) { my $btw = substr($lin, 15, 0, "1" x 39); print "$btw"; } close FILE;

      Thomas Kennll,

      That's not what I showed you, please note:

      foreach my $lin (@lines) { substr($lin, 15, 0, "1" x 39); print "$lin\ +n"; }
