( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I simplified some of the logic, and threw together this example. I hope it helps.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my @mField; #open(DATA," basicdez.dat") || die "Cannot open datfile: $!\n"; while(<DATA>) { unless (/^\s*\"EOS\"/) { @mField = (split(/\"\s*\"*/)); print $mField[1],', ',$mField[2],"\n"; print $mField[3],"\n"; print $mField[4],', ',$mField[5],"\n"; print $mField[6],"\n"; print "\n"; } } #close(DATA); __DATA__ "Jane""Doe" "123 W Beverly Ave" "Talahasee""Maine" "222-22-2222" "John""Doe" "456 W Beverly Ave" "Seattle""Washington" "333-33-3333" "EOS"

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.
