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

A rough sketch to get you started. Not tested

# Hi all , I need a little help , I am new to perl If for example use strict; # A lot of help use warnings; # more help # in a file named out.txt open my $file, '<', 'out.txt' or die "My homework crashed: $!\n"; # And also print 0 if it doesn't find the word. # Make a note we did not find the word yet... my $found = 0; # which contains the following data Apple Banana potato / Ashok is a b +oy / Apple is good / aLL three sentences in three different lines while (my $line = <$file>) { # read the file line at a time in a loop my @words = split /\s+/, $line; # I need to search the first occurrence of apple and Ashok # Check if the line contains apple and Ashok. # Are these variable, or always the same two literals? # Does order matter? # If we did not find them on this line, use 'next' to check the ne +xt line next unless grep { $_ eq 'apple' } @words; # Oeps, not a regular e +xpression next unless grep { $_ eq 'Ashok' } @words; # # print the 3rd word in that line ie "potato", "a" . print $line[2]; # Why 2? :-) # Note we found the word $found = 1; # exit the loop last; } # if we did not find a word, tell the user print $found unless $found; # you may want to print a newline now ...

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
