Anonymous Monk,
This seems like what you want, but if not - say so and I will try something else:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; open (INPUT,"jobs.txt") or die "Unable to open input : $!"; open (OUTPUT,"jobs.txt") or die "Unable to open output : $!"; select OUTPUT; $\ = "\n"; while (<INPUT>) { chomp; my @fields = split /\t/; unless (@fields > 2) { print join "\t" , @fields; } else { my $firstfield = shift @fields; while (my $nextfield = shift @fields) { print $firstfield, "\t", $nextfield; } } } close INPUT; close OUTPUT;

Cheers - L~R

Update: Both vladb++ and pzbagel++ have simpler solutions than this. The only thing I would point out is you said tab delimited.

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.
