this was posted 4 days ago on the Perl Guru forum: http://perlguru.com/gforum.cgi?post=84614;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread.
And both BillKSmith and myself tried to provide working solutions more than two days ago, despite the fact that your initial question there was far less precise and less clear than your OP here above.
There is nothing wrong with cross posting, but it is considered good practice to inform people that you have posted somewhere else to avoid duplication of work in different parts of the Internet.
And, whether or not the solutions provided by Bill and myself fully satisfied your needs, I am a bit surprised that you ask again the same thing here but, as of now, did not care to answer our posts helping you on that other forum.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
