( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Helpful use: in this example i wanted to open an in-memory file so i could make use of Perl's: format & write operations. This will print a formatted line into a "in mem" file and return it as a scalar string to the calling function. It was a easy way of making a formatted (aligned) toString() for my class. Enjoy.

sub toString { my $self = shift; my $thishash = $self->{_listofkeys}; my $memfile; open (FORMATTED_OUT, '>',\$memfile) || warn "unable to open mem +ory file!"; format FORMATTED_OUT = IMEI BrandName Model OS + Registered To ============================================================== +============================================ @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<< +<<<<<<<<<<<<<< @<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< $thishash->{IMEI}, $thishash->{PhoneBrandName}, $thishash->{Ph +oneModel}, $thishash->{PhoneOS}, $thishash->{RegisteredTo} . write FORMATTED_OUT ; close (FORMATTED_OUT); return $memfile; }

  • 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).
