in reply to Re (3): Removing Spaces From A File
in thread Removing Spaces From A File

Here's what I got:
my($name, $pwd); while(<LIST>) { chomp; $name = $pwd = $_ ; $name =~ s/\s//g ; $pwd =~ s/\s//g ; $pwd =~ tr [ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvw +xyz] [2223334445556667778889990022233344455566677788899 +900] ; write NEWFILE ; }
Seems like it is a little clunky. Not the way I imagined it but it does work. I was thinking more along the lines of:

Aaaa aaaa --> Aaaaaaaa --> 222222222 --> 22222
$name ------> $name -----> $pwd -------> Output
Read file --> Remove spaces -> Transliterate -> Print file

There's more than one way to do it, but only some of them actually work.
