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

Consider this:

# Open both IN_FILE and OUT_FILE here! while(<IN_FILE>) { chomp; next unless length; print OUT_FILE "$_\n"; }

I always come back to the following:

Do not slurp in a file into an array. Someday that input file will be huge. And that will happen when used for
production data. And you're on vacation. And you'll have to come in to the office during that sunny day on the beach.

Read the input file line by line and act upon each line (here by potentially writing it to the output file.)

Everything went worng, just as foreseen.

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.
