Thank you grep and BrowserUk.
below is a replacement for my first foreach statement which works better than my original code thanks to the suggestion by grep.
my $f2 = $pos[1] - $pos[0]; my $f3 = $pos[2] - $pos[1]; my $f4 = $pos[3] - $pos[2]; my $f5 = $pos[4] - $pos[3]; foreach $line (@data) { my $pictureline = "a$pos[0] a$f2 a$f3 a$f4 a$f5"; print unpack( $pictureline, $line ), "\n"; }
And thank you again BrowserUk for a more elegant solution altogether.

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.
