in thread [Resolved] Parse a file into a hash

Thanks for your reply. I don't know how to preserve initial format of the file here, so I'll replace empty cells of.csv with null.

Username; Asset Name

Corinna Mayer;JKDef4574

Janek Huska;NAdf8f48g5

Eric Shtits;JSd5345kPFl



Erik Fisher;UiO8trve

As you can see Eric Shtits owns 3 asset names in according to this .csv file, so two fields that supposed to be keys are empty.And I need to implement a solution that will be able to detect that all three asset names belong to one person. Regards, Kazak

    hi check if this code works or not its not tested.

    my ($key,$val,$keyprev); open(fh,'< file.txt'); while (<fh>){ $keyprev=$key; ($key,$val)=split /\;/, $_; $key=$keyprev if($key eq""); print "$key :: $val\n"; } close fh;

      Yes it helped. Thanks to everyone.
