( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Verbal, I tried the code out the way you had asked.It takes the input in however, it doesn't do anything with it. By the way, I am the one, who is trying to read the total from a file, and spit it out to another file. My code reads following:
print "Input file name: "; $_ = <>; chop; open(INFILE, $_); while (<INFILE>) { if(m/total/) { s/^total\s[0-9]+\s[0-9]+\s([0-9]+)\s([0-9]+)$/$1 $2/; print; } } close INFILE
I think the program is getting the input, however it is just not doing anything with it. Once I enter the name of the file, it just sits there, instead of parsing. How come?? THanks Paav

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.
