Amyone ever used SQR?
I have a job to do to convert a stack of SQR scripts to Perl.
I guess the first question is, has anyone done this before - had a Google and couldn't find anything!
So I'm probably down to doing it myself...SQR passes parameters into its print statement that are either absolute or relative row/column positions in the output report so
print 'fred' (1,2) - absolute line 1 column 2
print 'barnie' (+2,+3) - relative 2 lines on 3 columns right
I'd like to be able to pass the +2 to my own print format routine, but that'll usually pass as 2 and therefore lose the '+' sign. Can I force +2 to be passed as +2 without quoting it?

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.
