Do you know where your variables are?

Why are you bothering (and paying the transport & memory costs) to query 5 fields for every record, when you know that 3 of those fields are always going to be '9', 'STR', & 'STR1' respectively?

Why build a 2-level hash:

$data{ $dat[0] }{ $dat[1] } = $tmarker;

when the first level is always '9'.

Ditto this:

$lines{ $dat[0] } = "";

And why are you doing this:

if( !defined $dat[3] ) { $dat[3] = 0; } if( !defined $dat[4] ) { $dat[4] = 0; }

When the query dictates that fields 3 & 4 can never be undefined.

What is the point of this:

$datachr{ $dat[1] }{ $dat[3] } = $dat[4];

when $dat[3] & $dat[4] are constants?

Ditto this:

$chr{ $dat[3] } = "";

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.
