Certainly you can, and there are any number of ways to do it. One of the simplest might be to read in the whole file and split it on /^Traceroute:/xms and work with the chunks, but if the file is large (or could be large in the future) that may not be the best method. Going with what you have now I'd say do something like...
while (my $line = <$in>) { if($line =~ /^traceroute to (\S+)/) { $current_traceroute = $1; $count = 0; #reset the count; print "Trace for $current_traceroute: "; } elsif($line =~ /^\s*\d+\s+/) { $count++; } elsif($line =~ /^Query:/) { print "$count\n"; } }
Basically you want to catch the beginning (and end) of each block and reset things to start a new count and/or pull any other relevant data. If Query: isn't reliably there then you might have to rely on "Traceroute:" or "traceroute to" to signal the end of the previous call, but then you'd have to handle the last route by triggering on eof since there would be no final "Traceroute:". Make sense?

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.
