( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Original contents:

thanks I tried the below and no errors but nothing happens, sure it's me though.
if ($ARGV[0] eq "-a") { open (INFILE, "$ARGV[1]") or die "$ARGV[1] cannot be openned : $!"; my %hash; while ($source_file =~ /(\d)\s+(\d)\s+(\d)\s+(\w+)/) { push @{$hash{$4}}, $1, $2, $3; } print "@{$hash{$_}}[0..2] $_\n" for sort keys %hash; }
BTW I should've mentioned I must call my program as follows: myprogram.pl($ARGV[0]) option($ARGV[1]) mytextfile.txt($ARGV[-1]) I'm using this for assigning the text file to a variable $source_file = "$ARGV[-1] hence using $source_file to call the text file but now working. am I missing something?
Thanks - will try this out. :)

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.
