How to parse data from a record with fixed data up to a point and then variable length information.

How to parse data from a record with fixed data up to a point and then variable length information.

How to parse data from a record with fixed data up to a point and then variable length information.

(OP)
This is a Perl how do I do this question.

10622 2014-04-18 04:14:18.924064 EDT 10622 DEBUG: QUERY: insert into "EDWP06".ETL_STG.RQ_DRVR_UPDT next_data...

here is my input data. It is fixed positions up to the "EDWP06".ETL_STG.RQ_DRVR_UPDT

how do I extract the EDWP06, ETL_STG and RQ_DRVR_UPDT into three different vatiables without the "'s or the .'s ?????

The EDWP06, ETL_STG and RQ_DRVR_UPDT values change per record and their length changes too but they always have the "'s around the first field and then that is followed by a period, the second field and then another period and the third field.

I need some syntax help here.

Thanks

RE: How to parse data from a record with fixed data up to a point and then variable length information.

I would use something like this:

CODE

use strict;
use warnings;

my $input_data = '"EDWP06".ETL_STG.RQ_DRVR_UPDT';
print "\$input_data = $input_data\n";

# remove all \"
$input_data =~ s/\"//g;
#print "$input_data\n";

# split with \.
print "Values extracted:\n";
my @input_data_list = split(/\./, $input_data);
foreach my $item (@input_data_list){
  print "$item\n";
} 

Output:

CODE

$input_data = "EDWP06".ETL_STG.RQ_DRVR_UPDT
Values extracted:
EDWP06
ETL_STG
RQ_DRVR_UPDT
