( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
<sigh gauge="heavy"> ARgh.

Here's the code:

#! /usr/local/bin/perl # use DBI; use DBD::CSV; my($dh, $sh); my($row); $dh = DBI->connect("DBI:CSV:") || die "Cannot connect: ". $DBI::errstr; $dh->{'csv_tables'}->{'passwd'} = { 'eol' => '\n', 'sep_char' => ':', 'quote_char' => undef, 'escape_char' => undef, 'file' => '/etc/passwd', 'col_names' => ["login", "password", "uid", "gid", "gecos", "dir", "shell"] }; $sh = $dh->prepare("SELECT * FROM passwd") || die "Cannot prepare: ". $dh->errstr(); $sh->execute() || die "Cannot execute: ". $sh->errstr(); while ($row = $sh->fetch) { printf "%s\n", $row; }

Data is the /etc/passwd file at work which, for obvious reasons, I cannot post here.

Suffice to say it is a file of greater than one line consisting of records of the format:

user:*:[0-9]+:[0-9]+:Real Name:/dir:/path/to/shell

The output I get is the first row in the passwd file and no more.

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.
