in reply to Re^4: Adding a TAB after a certain ammount of characters
in thread Adding a TAB after a certain ammount of characters

Now the file looks like this perl1.pl script looks like this (after some modifications I did from reading the replies

#!/usr/local/bin/perl perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E my $text = q{2013020400000000006810083610022013068100200220130688000200494}; my @offs = ( 17, 6, 31, 3, 3 ); my @cums = ( 0 ); push @cums, $_ + $cums[ -1 ] for @offs; substr $text, $_, 0, q{-} for reverse @cums[ 1 .. $#cums ]; say $text;

And the reply I get from running the script is:

biancoari@biancoari ~/Desktop $ perl perl1.pl
syntax error at perl1.pl line 2, near "E
my "
Execution of perl1.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

I will add the

open(FILE, "filename.txt") or die "Could not open file: $!"

and modify the text, any idea if I am heading the right direction?
