"...Yet another statement pulled out of your ass...your own bullshit..."

Now pipe down and come back to the basic theme.

Given this task for learning experience:

  • Parse a Apache Logfile
  • Format is <LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common>
  • Extract the seven fields
  • Don't use a module
  • Special cases don't matter

Note: Your data must look like this: my $line = qq( - - [22/Apr/2015:13:35:04 +1000] "GET /bin/ HTTP/1.1" 401 509);, as in the example by kcott.

Inquisitorial question: How would you accomplish this?

I think the OP would appreciate this very much.


P.S.: Cnagf qbja abj naq fubj gung qnza pbqr!
