Depending on the actual size of your files, you could (this is pseudocode, sorry):

1. loop through each file (open file, slurp into an array, close file).
2. Add the array data to a 2-D array (each 'row' of the array would contain the data from each file).
3. Do a transpose on the 2-D array to get the data in the format you want.

This method would require 2 loops: The first to read the data from the files and add to the array. The second to transpose (which would be a simple 2-D nested loop).
Code is untested unless explicitly stated

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.
