Hello all,

I just thought I'd let you know there is an error in this example code.

@simpsons=split(/\s+/ $line); #now splits $line on 1 or more whitespac +e characters #@simpsons now containts ("Bart","Lisa","Maggie","Marge","Homer");

You are missing a comma (/\s+/,$line). On a seperate note does anyone know how I would join an array with a comman except for the last value.

ie I have an array of postcodes, that I am going to print out as a string.

$postcodes=join(", ",@Postcode_array); print "any area. postcode1, postcode2, postcode3\n"; What I would like to print out is this. print "any area. postcode1, postcode2 & postcode3\n";

Any help would be great... Thanks, Greg

Edit: g0n - code tags & formatting
