Go trough the file and remember what is the smallest and largest number in each column. Something like this (untested):

my $min_col_2 = 1_000_000; # Something large enough my $max_col_2 = 0; # Something small enough my $min_col_3 = 1_000_000; # Something large enough my $max_col_3 = 0; # Something small enough while(<>){ if(/^ZZ/){ my @array = split; if($min_col_2 > $array[1]){ $min_col_2 = $array[1]; } if($max_col_2 < $array[1]){ $max_col_2 = $array[1]; } # Snip } }

To get the step size you also have to remember the second smallest number, and look at the difference between that and the smallest when you are done.

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