Okay I am going to be really technical here don't mean to throw off anyone and I am not trying to brag...
I am trying to do ordering of numbers that are in the end of a list of data
So I am trying to use PERL SORT:
SORT [/R] [/+n] [[drive1:][path1]filename1] [> [drive2:][path2]filena
[command |] SORT [/R] [/+n] [> [drive2:][path2]filename2]
This seems to be the syntax which is easy for me to figure out cause I am an old hacker! What I don't get is the perl part of it
COUNT |||||| #this counts spaces over in the list
SORT /R #this sorts my data
This spews all kinds of computer generated errors....
Bareword "COUNT" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at ./order.pl
syntax error at ./ray.pl line 5, near "||||"
Bareword "SORT" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at ./order.pl l
Bareword "R" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at ./order.pl line
Execution of ./ray.pl aborted due to compilation errors.
Bareword "OPEN" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at ./order.pl l
String found where operator expected at ./order.pl line 5, near "OPEN
(Do you need to predeclare OPEN?)
syntax error at ./order.pl line 5, near "OPEN "filename""
Bareword "n" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at ./order.pl line
String found where operator expected at ./order.pl line 5, at end of l
(Missing semicolon on previous line?)
Can't find string terminator '"' anywhere before EOF at ./order.pl lin
I know this is pretty technical but if anyone out there could offer some tips ..I am not trying to "compile" anything either so these errors don't make much sense to me
