hi i m abhi
i have one file containing some info like
LT19-10-13-400922 --TID1-3039 1--RequestREGISTER
LT19-10-13-405432 --TID1-3039 1--Response100
LT19-10-13-410015 --TID1-3039 1--Response401
LT19-10-13-415481 --TID1-3039 2--RequestREGISTER
LT19-10-13-419800 --TID1-3039 2--Response100

where LT19-10-13-400922 is log time ,,i.e. 19 hr. 10 min. 13 seconds 400922 usec. and i want this to convert only in second that is (19*3600+ 10*60 + 13). i want other out put file with these values.


waiting for early respone
Thanks in Advance:)

Try this:

use strict;
use warnings;
open (OUT, ">newfile.txt");
while(<DATA>){
	chomp;
	my ($time,$rest)=split(/ --/,$_,2);
	my ($hours,$mins,$secs,$usec)=split(/\-/,$time);
	$hours=~s/^LT//;
	my $newsec=$hours*3600+$mins*60+$secs;
	print OUT "LT$newsec --$rest\n";
}
close OUT;

__DATA__
LT19-10-13-400922 --TID1-3039 1--RequestREGISTER
LT19-10-13-405432 --TID1-3039 1--Response100
LT19-10-13-410015 --TID1-3039 1--Response401
LT19-10-13-415481 --TID1-3039 2--RequestREGISTER
LT19-10-13-419800 --TID1-3039 2--Response100

The DATA section can be read from another file.

Output (newfile.txt):

LT69013 --TID1-3039 1--RequestREGISTER
LT69013 --TID1-3039 1--Response100
LT69013 --TID1-3039 1--Response401
LT69013 --TID1-3039 2--RequestREGISTER
LT69013 --TID1-3039 2--Response100

I noticed your time values are all the same. I didn't know if you wanted just the seconds, or the LT+seconds or the rest of each line, so I put them all back in.

Thanks mitchems for your early response :)
I suppose my time.txt file containing the contents like

19-10-13-400922 TID1-3039 1RequestREGISTER
19-10-13-405432 TID1-3039 1Response100
19-10-13-410015 TID1-3039 1Response401
19-10-13-415481 TID1-3039 2RequestREGISTER
19-10-13-419800 TID1-3039 2Response100
19-10-13-426400 TID2-3039 1RequestREGISTER
.........................................

and i have modified the code as below

#!perl -w

use strict;
use warnings;

open(INPUT, "<time.txt");
open (OUT, ">newfile.txt");
while(<INPUT>){
    chomp;
    my ($time,$rest)=split(/ --/,$_,2);
    my ($hours,$mins,$secs,$usec)=split(/\-/,$time);
    $hours=~s/^LT//;
    my $newsec=$hours*3600+$mins*60+$secs;
    print OUT "LT$newsec --$rest\n";
}


close INPUT;
close OUT;

but its giving following errors

Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at check.pl line 14, <INPUT> line 1.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at check.pl line 14, <INPUT> line 2.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at check.pl line 14, <INPUT> line 3.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at check.pl line 14, <INPUT> line 4.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at check.pl line 14, <INPUT> line 5.

help me out plzzzz
thanks alot

Edited 3 Years Ago by mike_2000_17: Fixed formatting

hey mitchems in output file $rest part is not writing in newfile.txt
the problem at line 14 i.e. print OUT "LT$newsec --$rest\n";
:(

The problem is that your original example file had lines of:

LT19-10-13-400922 --TID1-3039 1--RequestREGISTER

And your new one has:

19-10-13-400922 TID1-3039 1 RequestREGISTER

The "--" is missing from the new file. I split on the " --". If it is not there $rest is not initialized, which is giving you both errors. If you wish to fix it, split on something other than " --" (for example split on space).

Like this:

use strict;
use warnings;

open(INPUT, "<time.txt");
open (OUT, ">newfile.txt");
while(<INPUT>){
chomp;
my ($time,$rest)=split(/ /,$_,2); #/\t/ if tab delimited
my ($hours,$mins,$secs,$usec)=split(/\-/,$time);
$hours=~s/^LT//;
my $newsec=$hours*3600+$mins*60+$secs;
print OUT "$newsec $rest\n";
}
close INPUT;
close OUT;

It would be helpful if you posted the actual format of the input file. Also, I don't know if your file is space of tab delimited. See above.

Thank u very much mitchem
yes i had mistaken............now its solved,,,
hope u will help further ...........Mr. Perl GURU :)
