OK, after looking at your sample output I realize this is not what you need ... but anyway, for those that have a similar need (visualizing tree structures) let me point out GraphViz, the Perl interface to the GraphViz tool.

With GraphViz installed, making a little nice postscript (could be PNG, too, or whatever you can postscript convert too) image of your treepath input from above (assumed to be in file try.txt below) becomes as easy as this little shell script:

echo 'digraph G { concentrate = true; ' > cat try.txt | perl -lane '$F[2] =~ s/:000//g; $F[2] =~ s/:/ -> /g; $F[ +2] .= ";"; print $F[2] if $F[2] =~ /->/' >> echo '}' >> dot -Tps -o

Where file try.txt is:

1 => 001:000:000 2 => 001:002:000 3 => 001:003:000 4 => 001:003:004 5 => 001:002:005

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.
