( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thank you very much! I am using the first suggestion, as I don't really understand the binary search yet, and so far it doesn't seem to have problems with searching the 500,000 rows.

I am now running into the problem of the results being output on different lines in the resulting CSV file for each print command. Here is my code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; open my $GENES, '<', 'chr1data.csv' or die $!; open my $LOCATIONS, '<', 'chr1snps.csv' or die $!; chomp(my @locations = map { (split ',')[2] } <$LOCATIONS>); # If IDs are not already sorted, uncomment the following line: # @locations = sort { $a <=> $b } @locations; for (<$GENES>) { my ($chromosome, $start, $end) = split ','; print "$chromosome,$start,$end"; my $idx = 0; # For $end, start searching where you left for + $start. my $correction = 0; # Needed for Start(-) == Start and End(+) == E +nd. for my $pos ($start, $end) { $idx++ while $locations[$idx] <= $pos - $correction and $idx <= $#locations; die "No numbers around $pos ($idx) \n" if $idx == 0 or $idx > $#locations; print ",$locations[$idx-1],$locations[$idx]"; $correction = 1; } print "\n"; }

Printing print ",$locations[$idx-1],$locations[$idx]"; puts this information on a new line. I'd like it to come out on the same line as print "$chromosome,$start,$end"; for each search. Do I have a \n in the wrong place?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
