You can print the matching lines with a regular expression that matches only the lines you're interested in:

while (<$fh>) { print if /^(.+?)\|(.+?)\| (.+?)\s+(\d+)\s+(\d+e[+-]\d+)$/; }

The above will also handle arbitrarily large files, as it reads one line at a time into memory.

There are many hits, but if I want the top ten only, what do i do?

I'm not sure what you mean by top ten, exactly (highest "Score"? "E Value"? Order within the file?), but a likely approach to this would be to modify the above while loop and instead of printing, place each line in a hash. My regular expression already does basic parsing of the input line into capture variables $1 through $5, so you can try something like this:

$hash{$2} = { col1 => $1, desc => $3, score => $4, E => $5 } if /.../; # Use regex above

Then, after the loop finishes, you can sort and display the results however you like. For example:

my $how_many = 10; for (sort { $hash{$b}->{score} <=> $hash{$a}->{score} } keys %hash +) { printf "%-4s %-55s %5s\n", $hash{$_}->{col1}, $hash{$_}->{desc}, $hash{$_}->{score}; last if --$how_many == 0; }

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).
