I was just thinking of a way to input the data into an array of hashes from one or more external files which would hold the data. The array is then used to provide some simple configuration options to a program. This script is intended to run both Linux and Windows, obviously changing the paths.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use autodie; # For Windows my $Subscriptions_Path = "G:/Subscriptions"; my $Phone_Sync = "G:/Sync/PHONE/Main/Music"; my $Temp_Files_Location = "G:/Subscriptions/tmp"; my $Wait_Time = 10; # Subscription DATA sets my @Subscription = ( { Sub_Name => "Morph", Archive_File => "Morph Archive.txt", Lib_Sub_Path => "$Subscriptions_Path/Morph", Phone_transfer => 0 }, ); for (@Subscription) { print "Beginning Subscription Service for $_->{Sub_Name} \n"; print "\nCompleting Subscription Service for $_->{Sub_Name} \n\n\ +n"; sleep int(rand($Wait_Time)); }

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.
