How do you know whether a line matches or not? Ie what do the (for example) Rlsomething5 fields have in common for the program to know that they are related? Assuming that there is a way, you could keep a buffer in an array or hash of the first result set (if it is not too big), and then as you get the second result set, prepend the corresponding element of the first set, or a '--' if it not set. Without knowing much about the data it's hard to give a code example, but here is a guess (without the SQL stuff, as it's too early on Monday morning :-)):
foreach $result (@result_1) { $resultHash {${$result}[0]} = ${$result}[1]; } foreach $result (@result_2) { if (defined ($resultHash {${$result}[0])) { print "${$result}[0] , $resultHash[1]"; } else { print " -- --"; } print "${$result}[0] , ${$result}[1]\n" }
I've assumed that the first column is some kind of key, and treated the results as an array of arrays. Hope this makes some sense!

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.
