I want to read in a list of data, that looks similar to the following...
"R-ITEC" "" "ITDEC"
"PENDING" 08/29/01 18864
To read this in with read and seperate out the following fields so that in perl code, I could assign the following values...
$Destination = "localhost"
$Program_Type = "R-ITEC"
$Program_Name = ""
$Incoming_Foo = "ITDEC"
$Decision = "PENDING"
$Date_Applied = "08/29/01"
$Appl_Number = "18864"
Please help me if you know what I should do. I am currently under an understanding that I can do something of the following...
last if /^EOS$/;
to read in the data stream, but I do not know how to seperate these fields into where I would want them to go to complete this process.
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
