( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Something like this?

use warnings; use strict; my $linesSinceBreak = 0; while (<DATA>) { chomp; $linesSinceBreak = 0, print "\n<<BreakHere\n" if ++$linesSinceBreak +>= 15 && ! length $_; print "$_\n"; }
__DATA__ I have the text of a play which I was to put into a presentation. So I need to split it up every 15 lines or so. I had already stated to do this in vim by recording a macro where I would insert some special text say xx (which I can then parse upon) after I'd moved down around 15 lines. Can this be done in perl (more automatically I guess)? Also does it complicate things to not want to introduce the parsing marker when the 15 line account occurs in the middle of a paragraph? Sorry for not having a good grasp of the parsing lingo here, but hopefully you get what I want to do. I have the text of a play which I was to put into a presentation.

Perl is Huffman encoded by design.

Title:
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.
