( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi PerlMonks, I have a script here that need some tweaking to achieve the outcome that I am after:
my %c; while( <> ){ chomp; my($c2,$c4,$c12)=(split/\|/)[1,3,11]; $c{"$c2|$c4"}||=[$_,0]; ++$c{"$c2|$c4"}[1] if $c12=~/\S/; } $"="|"; for( sort keys %c ){ print "@{$c{$_}}\n"; }

Here is the input file:

col1|col2|col3|col4|col5|col6|col7|col8|col9|col10|col11|col12 BLA|001036|S|3228|10|1|2|3|001036|W035|S| BLA|001036|S|3228|0|0|0|0|001036|W035|S|08961029909655092918 BLA|001036|S|3228|0|0|0|0|001036|W035|S|08961029909655092926 BLA|001036|S|3228|0|0|0|0|001036|W035|S|08961029909655092934 BLA|001036|S|3228|0|0|0|0|001036|W035|S|08961029909655092942 BLT|600123|S|3437|0|20|0|0|001036|W035|S| BRO|900177|S|3531|-1|0|0|0|001036|W035|S| CHL|123777|S|3327|3|0|0|0|001036|W035|S| CHL|123777|S|3327|0|0|0|0|001036|W035|S|08961029909655093791 CHL|123777|S|3327|0|0|0|0|001036|W035|S|08961029909655093775

Basically I am trying to count the number of string that appears in the last column and append the count as a new column in the output file. My references/main keys for the initial array are column 2 (001036) and column 4 (3228). For each new occurrence of col 2 and col 4(e.g 001036 and 3228), the last column would always be a space (" "). So if($col12 != " "), i need to count the number of string in the last column that appeared after it. The final outcome should look something like the following:

BLA|001036|S|3228|10|1|2|3|001036|W035|S| |4 BLT|600123|S|3437|0|20|0|0|001036|W035|S| |0 BRO|900177|S|3531|-1|0|0|0|001036|W035|S| |0 CHL|123777|S|3327|3|0|0|0|001036|W035|S| |2
When I run the script, what I am getting is:
BLA|001036|S|3228|10|1|2|3|001036|W035|S| |4 CHL|123777|S|3327|3|0|0|0|001036|W035|S| |2 BLT|600123|S|3437|0|20|0|0|001036|W035|S| |0 BRO|900177|S|3531|-1|0|0|0|001036|W035|S| |0

How do I get the count value to not print to a new line? In desperate need of help. I am fairly new with perl. Thank you in advance!! Regards, Jason

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).
