Another glorious day in scripting heaven, when all of a sudden a wild request appears. I need to create a script that checks two files together that have the same name but a different extension. i.e. (*.in) and (*.out)
So far I have managed to get the information I need from the *.in file but I have no idea how to check it against the information in the .out file.
Also I need to check that the file names(without the extension match)
This is my code so far:
my @files = <*.in>;
for my $file (@files)
open my $read, '<', $file;
open my $write, '>', "$file.log";
@lines = split('', $_);
if($. == 3)
$scid = substr $_, 72,6;
print $write "$scid\n";
#check where files match
At the moment it only prints the unique identifier from the *.in the file to a seperate file to check that this is correct.
The identifier is A00000 (one alpha 5 numeric) and is the 72nd bit offset from the 4th line, in the *.in file. However is 2nd line in and the 28th bit across in the *.out file. Please help!
