It sounds like you'll just need to use the unpack function (perldoc -f unpack) to pull the byte string apart into the fields you want. I'd guess it would be something like:

my ($datetime, $open, $high, $low, $close, $volume, $interest) = unpack "A14f5Q", $h{$key};

Note: Totally untested, but I think that if you play around with unpack you'll be able to pull it apart. (You'll want to check perldoc -f pack and perldoc perlpacktut as well.)

Update: changed variable names.


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    I was able to write up a rough script based on your recommendations. And it works!
    #!/usr/bin/perl use BerkeleyDB; print "start\n"; my $filename = '/home/user/Perl/AA'; #unlink $filename ; my %h ; my $dbh = tie %h, 'BerkeleyDB::Btree', -Filename => $filename, -Flags => DB_CREATE or die "Cannot open $filename $! $BerkeleyDB::Error" ; foreach $key (keys %h) { my ($open, $high, $low, $close, $volume, $interest) = unpack "dddddl", $h{$key}; print "$key: $open,$high,$low,$close,$volume,$interest\n"; # print "$h{$key}\n"; } untie %h; print "end\n";
    Thank You for your help.
