( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It's still not clear what exactly you want, but maybe you want a line by line comparison of the files? If so, the following will help you along:
use strict; use warnings; open my $fh1, '<', 'text1' or die $!; open my $fh2, '<', 'text2' or die $!; while (!eof($fh1) && !eof($fh2)) { chomp( my $line1 = <$fh1> ); chomp( my $line2 = <$fh2> ); if ($line1 eq $line2 ) { print "Match for $line1\n"; } else { print "Difference for $line1, $line2\n"; } } if (! eof($fh1)) { warn "Still more data in file handle 1\n"; } if (! eof($fh2)) { warn "Still more data in file handle 2\n"; } close($fh1); close($fh2);

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.
