How can i remove one line from file ???

How can i remove one line from file ???

How can i remove one line from file ???

Hi !

I have a problem...

I have datafile separated with ¦ -sign.

kori.dat looks like that:


How can i remove data1¦data1¦data1¦data1 -line or data3¦data3¦data3¦data3 -line ????


RE: How can i remove one line from file ???

first save the line to a variable like $line. Then

$line =~ s/data1¦data1¦data1¦data1//;

This will substitute that line with nothing, thus making ur line disappear.

RE: How can i remove one line from file ???

This might be what you are looking for......
With the lines of your file in @lines.....


@lines = ( 'data1¦data1¦data1',

foreach $line (@lines) { print "$line\n"; }

$garbage = splice(@lines,2,1);
splice pulls the elements from the array
                                                                    starting on the third element and going
                                                                    and going 1 and returns the removed
                                                                    elements.  This example removes
                                                                    the 'data3' line.

print "\n\n";
foreach $line (@lines) { print "$line\n"; }

print "\n\n$garbage\n";

keep the rudder amid ship and beware the odd typo
