( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am new to perl. I have to convert the format of data as follows: Existing data format: (Please note that actual data contains more number of rows and colmns.. and not pre-defined)
----------------------- 1 2 3 a b c x y z -----------------------
The data format I need is:
----------------------- 1 a x 2 b y 3 c z -----------------------
I am going to use the new formatted data for an input to create graphs. I have all the necessary modules installed but this logic (I know it is not very complicated, but I am not getting it). Please advice how to take it forward. My final objective is to get the data in variable in somthing similar to following:
my @data = (['1','a','x' ], ['2','b','y' ], ['3','c','z' ]);
Please help.
Folks, The fact is that I am totally lost now :-) My objective was/is: To read a flat file which has SAR (system activity reporter) data and then to generate the graph using that data. I have module for graph but the problem here is the data needs to be transversed (row-> columns). My data looks like:
17:12:41 0 0 0 100 17:12:42 0 1 0 99 17:12:43 0 0 0 100 : :
And for the graph creation, I need this data in following format:
17:12:41 17:12:42 17:12:43 : : ... ... ... 0 0 0 : : ... ... ... 0 1 0 : : ... ... ... 0 0 0 : : ... ... ... 100 99 100 : : ... ... ...
Finally, to get an array like below:
my @data = ( ['17:12:41','17:12:42','17:12:43'.........], ['0','1','0'.........], ['0','0','0'.........], ['100','99','100'.....]);
