What OS are you using? This answer might seem a bit odd given this is a Perl forum, but sometimes the best solution isn't Perl. (Blasphemy?)

If you are in a unix environment, and all you need to do is extract the fields as described above then you can use the unix command line program 'cut'. This does exactly what you want without needing to write any code.

cut -f3,1,6 inputfile.txt > outputfile.txt

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
