( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Ok here is my problem I have a file that contains %s and I need those to become (Info: %s).

Here is what I have :
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; open READER,"<HWM.err"; open WRITER,">>final.err"; while( my $line = <READER> ) { chomp $line; #$linefinal= sprintf $line, "(Info: %s)"; (my $linefinal = $line) =~s/%s/(Info: %s)/g; #(my $linefinal = $line) =~s/\%s/(Info: \%s)/g; printf WRITER "$linefinal\n"; } close READER; close WRITER; __DATA__ 6101;CON_RST_OCC;3;3;0;0;Controller reset occured %s; Zurücksetzung de +s Controllers ist erfolgt %s 6102;DEG_UNIT;3;3;0;0;Degraded unit %s;Unit wurde runtergestuft %s
I tried to use \%s in the s statement but that didn't help either.
Can anyone help me please?

OK I updated the code

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.
