wats wrong with this code.

wats wrong with this code.

wats wrong with this code.

so here im jst tryin to push all lines with todays date into the array.
but all the data is going thru and getting saved in the array.

$var has this thing
adminode Sun Mar 11 01:53:16 EST 2012 - technoman - sleeping nodename
adminnode Sun Mar 11 01:53:37 EST 2012 - superman - awake nodename
adminnode Sun Jul 19 01:53:37 EST 2012 - superman - awake nodename

so logicaly only the last line should go thru (cos im comparing awk '{print $3}' in date command to awk print $4 in the three lines above).. but all the three lines are goin thru

$i=`date | awk '{print $3}'`;
$p=`echo '$var' | awk '{print $4}'`;
#push(@y,"$var") if $p == $i;

print $_ ;


RE: wats wrong with this code.

Feherke .. thanks a lot .. that was my mistake .. i rem reading that in a book .. but it had slipped from my mind ..
Feherke u suggested that this not a healthy perl practice .. could u please suggest how to do the same in perl .. can this be done without using command line commands.

can this be done without using command line commands.
Certainly can.

This is how your loop should look :

CODE --> (fragment)

my @time=localtime;

foreach (<fho>) {
  my @part=split;
  push @y,$_ if $part[3]==$time[3];

Regarding the use of command line tools, if you want so, Perl itself is also a command line tool :

CODE --> command-line

perl -nae 'BEGIN{@t=localtime}print if$F[3]==$t[3]' /home/technoman3/$node.txt
