in reply to Format question...

I'd start by reading the format() and write() sections of perlfunc, then move on to perlform.

If you have access to Programming Perl, 3rd Edition, read chapter 7 Formats.


I really hate it when I start to answer a question and do not get to finish writing it until much later...

    I read every bit of that and still didn't get a feel for it.

    I'm not sure why the docs didn't really melp me any. Hofmator's example above was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. Thanks for all the quick replies, everyone!
