Hi JohnGG,

I tried running the script but this error kept popping up! Note that I modified it to take files:

my $FILENAME1 = "random.txt"; open(INFILE1, $FILENAME1); my @tests = map [ split ], <INFILE1>; my $FILENAME2 = "my_column_file.txt"; open(INFILE2, $FILENAME2); my @results; while ( <INFILE2> ) { my @cols = split; foreach my $idx ( 0 .. $#tests ) { foreach my $subidx ( 0 .. $#{ $tests[ $idx ] } ) { my @posns = split m{}, $tests[ $idx ]-[ $subidx ]; $results[ $idx ]-[ $subidx ] ++ if scalar @posns == grep { q{r} eq $cols[ $_ ] } @posn +s; } } } say qq{@$_} for @results;

the error was:

Can't modify anonymous list ([]) in postincrement (++) at line 2 +0, near "] ++" syntax error at line 26, near "say qq{@$_}" Execution of aborted due to compilation errors.

Line 26 is this one: $results $idx - $subidx ++. Also I notice an error/flag in the last line. Should i change the say to print?

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
