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

If I understood correctly, you want to provide 2 names (for example, "Julia_Roberts" and "Cintheia"), look if both exist in the array and append the "(1,5)" thing to the second. If this is what you want, an array doesn't seem the best way to manage your data, and maybe a hash could be a better solution:

use strict; use warnings; use Tie::RegexpHash; tie my %names, 'Tie::RegexpHash' or die $!; %names = ( qr/Julia_Roberts/ => ["Julia_Roberts","(1,5)"], qr/Cintheia/ => ["Cintheia"], qr/Chelsia/ => ["Chelsia"] ); while (<DATA>){ chomp; my @pair = split; $names{$pair[1]}->[1]= $names{$pair[0]}->[1]; print join ("",@{$names{$_}}),"\n" for (keys %names); print "\n"; } __DATA__ Julia_Roberts Cintheia Julia_Roberts(1,5) Cintheia Julia_Roberts Chelsia
This Outputs:
Julia_Roberts(1,5) Cintheia(1,5) Chelsia Julia_Roberts(1,5) Cintheia(1,5) Chelsia Julia_Roberts(1,5) Cintheia(1,5) Chelsia(1,5)

If it is not what you are trying to do, please be more specific

Hope this helps!

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