Here's a complete program. Basically the same as bbfu with a couple of enhancements. Adding a -1 to the split allows for null values to still be added, such as:
and chomping the line removes the newline, otherwise it will end up in the last element of each array.

my $myfile = "BigOldFile.psv"; ## pipe-separated values :) open(MYFILE, $myfile) or die "Could not open $myfile: $!\n"; my @lines = []; while(<MYFILE>) { chomp; push @lines, [split(/\|/, $_, -1)]; } ## This will show you the format: my $line=1; for (@lines) { print "Line $line: $_\n"; for (@$_) { print "*$_*\n"; ## Stars are to demonstrate null values } $line++; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
