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

The magic numbers in my code come in because each line consists of 1 date followed 16 key-value pairs. This adds up to 33 pieces of data per record. If the string has more than these 33 pieces of information, then there must be at least one more record.

Update: You can avoid magic numbers by doing something along the lines of:

my @records = split /,\s*(?=\d{2}\/\d{2}\/\d{4}\s\d{2}\:\d{2}\:\d{2}\s +[AP]M)/, $string; foreach (@records) { my %hash = (Date => split /\,\s*/); insert_into_db(%hash); }

Title:
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.
