in reply to How to skip first n character from data and read every m character..

Here's yet another way to do it:

#!/perl/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $str = '123456789100020003000400050006000'; my $pattern = 'A9(A4)*'; my @values = unpack($pattern, $str); print Dumper(\@values);

Just change the values in the $pattern to suit your needs.

Your wish is my commandline.
