I'm not totally clear on what you are trying to do but maybe something like this will get you started:

# $infile is assumed to be the file you are reading... # I'm assuming you know what you want to put in the out # file name and how to get it... my $otherinfo = &getotherinfo; # the \d{2} is the day, make it \d{1,2} if you want to # allow weblog.2Jul as well as weblog.23Jul # # the \w{3} catches the month abbreviation (my $outfile = $infile) =~ s/\.\d{2}\w{3}/-$otherinfo/; # do this if you want to use an absolute pathname... $outfile = $pathname . $outfile; open(OUTFILE, "> $outfile");

If i totally missed what you were trying to do, let me know.

Good luck,

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
