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

I like pc88mxer's solution better than my own, but in the interest in showing different ways of doing the same thing, I'll post it anyway.

use Data::Dumper; my $in = '0 X X X X X X X' . ' X 1 X X X X X X' . ' X X 2 X X X X X' . ' X X X 3 X X X X' . ' X X X X 4 X X X' . ' X X X X X 5 X X' . ' X X X X X X 6 X' . ' X X X X X X X 7'; print Dumper [ string2matrix( $in, 8 ) ]; sub string2matrix { my ( $string, $width ) = @_; my @out; while ( $string ) { my @iter = split /\s+/, $string, $width + 1; $string = scalar @iter > $width ? pop @iter : ''; push @out, \@iter; } return @out; }

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.
