Inserting Array Values

Inserting Array Values

Inserting Array Values

(OP)
I read a file into an array like this:
open(HANDLE."<$filenamevar");
@arrayname = <HANDLE>;
close(HANDLE);

I need to search through the array for a certain string... I can do that no problem.

Then I need to insert new data after that without overwriting...

EXAMPLE:
an array with the following values

1
2
3
4
5
6

would become:

1
2
a
b
c
d
3
4
5
6

What would be my best approach?

RE: Inserting Array Values

#!/usr/local/bin/perl
@vals = ('1','2','3','4','5','6');
@alpha = ('a','b','c');

splice @vals,2,0,@alpha;

print "@vals\n";

'hope this helps...

BINGO!  I ~knew~ splice was it, I just didn't grasp the example in my book...  THANKS!

RE: Inserting Array Values

Hi

What do I do if I need to append 'a b c' to a array value in $val[1]

To obtain like this 1, 2abc, 3, 4, ..
