perl_seeker:

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. But for a case statement, I just use the simple tried and true:

if ('foo' eq $val) { # process case 1 } elsif ('bar' eq $val or 'baz' eq $val) { # process case 2 } elsif ('boom' eq $val) { # process case 3 } else { print "Unexpected value '$val'!\n"; }

Just add elsif blocks as needed. Not as "pretty" as a switch/case statement in other languages, but it's simple and clear.

The way your question is phrased makes me think you might have meant "how do you use different format statements within a page?". To do that, you do something like:

use FileHandle; format foo_rec = FOO @>>>>>>> $flds[3] . format dflt_rec = @<<<<<<< @>>>>>>> @>>>>> @>>>>> $flds[2] $flds[3] $flds[5] $flds[9] . while (<FH>) { my @flds = split /\|/, $_; if ($flds[0] eq 'foo') { format_name FS "foo_rec"; write FS; } else { format_name FS "dflt_rec"; write FS; } }

Title:
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.
