( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

First some suggestions, against using barewords, and for using open in its three terms form: more explicit and understandable
Also I put there use autodie because I'm lazy :$

use warnings; use strict; use autodie; open my $in,'<', "in.txt"; open my $out,'>', "out.txt";
Since you start at first line and then jump over each line to save to the previous line you can use the perl auto variable for line counts
my $previous_line; while (<$in>) { $current_line = $_; chomp $current_line; if(!defined($previous_line) || $. mod 2 != 0){ $previous_line = $current_line; next; } my @previous_columns = split(" ", $previous_line); my $end_coor = $previous_columns[2] + $previous_columns[3]; my @current_columns = split(" ", $current_line); my $seq_length = length $previous_columns[6]; my $gap_count = $previous_columns[6] =~ tr/Q//; my $original_length = $seq_length - $gap_count; my $original_end_coor = $previous_columns[2] + $original_length; my $distance = $current_columns[2] - $original_end_coor; $current_columns[2] = $end_coor + $distance; $previous_line = $current_line; print $out "$current_columns[2]\n"; } close $in; close $out;
I'm not sure about the way you want to go over the file though, do you want to just jump over half of the lines?

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.
