use strict; use warnings; use Parse::RecDescent; use Data::Dumper; my $g = Parse::RecDescent->new(<<'EOG'); main: head row(s) /\Z/ { [$item[1], @{$item[2]}]; } | <error> head: /.*/ /-*/ { $item[1]; } row: date time num { [@item[1..3]]; } date: /\d\d\d\d-\d\d-\d\d/ time: /\d\d:\d\d:\d\d/ num: /[\d\.]+/ EOG my $data = join '', <DATA>; print Dumper($g->main($data)); __DATA__ Timestamp ---------------------------------------------------------------------- +--------- 2009-11-05 17:59:52 1.501 2009-10-15 17:39:52 2.501 2009-12-25 17:19:52 3.501
will return the following, skipping empty lines and spaces, or generate a detailed error if data is invalid.
$VAR1 = [ 'Timestamp', [ '2009-11-05', '17:59:52', '1.501' ], [ '2009-10-15', '17:39:52', '2.501' ], [ '2009-12-25', '17:19:52', '3.501' ] ];
Update: changing the row: rule returning a DateTime will also verify if the date is correct, improving the error detection while parsing.

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.
