( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Gday, I hope this helps a little: My unerstanding is this: as you go through the file, count each occurrence of the subcategory and when you finish, display numbers for each subcategory. My example assumes stdin (so you can check it out on your file before you put it in a cgi... while(<>) { ($categ, $subcat, $therest) = split(/|/, $_, 3); $subcatcount{$subcat}++; } foreach $subcategory (sort keys(%subcatcount)) { print "$subcategory contains $subcatcount{$subcategory}\n"; } ...should do what you want.

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.
