Thanks, this elaborates on your analysis as johngg mentioned. I do not have fixed record seperators but I do have records of variable length/content so I rely on offset and size. I intend to use your example based on calculating each record's end offset:

#!/usr/bin/perl -slw use strict; my $data = <<EOD; record 1 is 20 bytesrecord 2 is 20 bytesrecord 3 is longer at 30 bytes EOD my $p = 0; my @refs; # endpos would be calculated based on recsize - this is simplified: my @endpos=(20,40,70); for (@endpos) { push @refs, \substr $data, $p, $_ - $p; $p = $_; } print '[',$$_,']' for @refs;

Hope I got that right.

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.
