( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This should be easy for you guys but I never had to do it.

Okay I'm reading paragraphs in from $/
and splitting on the newline -
$/ = ""; while ($para = <>) { @lines = split(/\n/, $para); if (@lines == 1) { $lastHeading = $lines[0]; next; } if ($para =~ "mSOriginating") { if ($para =~ "$msisdn") { print "@lines"; } } }
My problem is when the results print it comes out all jumbled. It prints readable text from what it found but it doesn't print them out on newlines. It's just one line right after the other like constant text. Let's say you had the numbers 1 through 10 but you wanted them to print out on newlines for each number - Example:
What is happening: 12345678910 What I want: 1 2 3 4 5 etc....

How can I get the print to do that? I know it's something with "$\" (The output record separator) or the "-l" command handling option for PERL but I don't know how to use them and the books I'm using don't help much in that area.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
