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

I believe you have to initialize the array in order. Switching these two lines:

$flds[16] = undef; $flds[8] = 0;

...around like this:

$flds[8] = 0; $flds[16] = undef;

...will work, but then you won't be able to populate the other ones. Perhaps a full blown initialization of any array elements that aren't populated by split first?:

use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; my $value = "A\tB\tC\tD\tE\tF\t\t\t\t"; my @flds = split(/\t/,$value); for (0..16){ $flds[$_] = undef if ! defined $flds[$_]; } $flds[8] = 0; print Dumper \@flds;

Output:

$VAR1 = [ 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E', 'F', undef, undef, 0, undef, undef, undef, undef, undef, undef, undef, undef ];

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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
