And is your question 'how do I do this in perl?' You don't say, but assume for a moment that it is.

If so, you'll find the answer to the first part of your problem by using Super Search or googling " max min column" (or something similar). Your question, if it's as stated in para 1, has been answered numerous times by Monks -- the most recent instance was, I think, just this week.

After that, solving the 'step value' requirement should be trivial if you have even the slightest inclination to learn Perl.

OTOH, if your question is how to do it better with shell commands, you might want to ask ShellMonks.

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.
