I am a complete beginner to PERL. I am using Strawberry PERL. I am coming across text files that I need to format. I basically need to take field data that starts with a certain character and output the field data to a new file which will have all the fields delimited by character of my choosing.
Here is a short example.
; Record 1
@C ENDDOC# R000358
@C BEGATTACH R000358
@C ENDATTACH R000358
@C MAILSTORE No
@C DATECREATED 11/23/2010
@C DATELASTMOD 07/18/2010
@C FILENAME wrangling.wpd
@C TIMEACCESSED 00:00:00
@C TIMECREATED 15:21:34
@C TIMELASTMOD 09:04:12
For each 'Record' the '@C' and '@T' is the field delimiter followed by a space, then the field name followed by a space, then the field data. I need all the field data delimited in one row rather then a column as shown above. The record delimiter is a semi-colon(;).
I am looking to parse the text file and reformat
"R000358","R000358","R000358","R000358","No",etc, etc. (in one row)
This example is comma delimited but it may change but I figured I would start there.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
