This could solve your purpose.
my $file = 'Events.txt'; open $info, "<", $file or die "Couldn't open events file: $!"; open $xml, "<", 'XML_FILE.xml' or die "Couldn't open xml file: $!"; open $output, ">", 'OUTPUT.txt' or die "Coudn't open output file: $!"; my $found = 0; #Flag for indication while(my $line = <$info>) { @get_data = split ',' ,$line; $alert_ID = $get_data[5]; seek $xml, 0, 0; # Seek to the beginning, to scan from beginning f +or each ID. while(my $xml_line = <$xml>) { if ($xml_line =~ m|<ALERT_ID>$alert_ID</ALERT_ID>|) { $found = 1; last; } } if ( $found == 1 ) { print "$alert_ID Found.\n"; $found = 0; } else { print $output "@get_data"; } } close $info; close $xml; close $output;

If you don't want anything else to be considered from the XML file. You can remove the other lines(either using sed or grep) before executing the script. It would reduce the processing time significantly.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
