in reply to regular expressions

hi
Use a total counter outside your loop and print it out at
the end.
Something along the lines of:
use strict; use warnings; my $total; while(<DATA>) { my ($county, $year, $yr_tot) = split; $total += $yr_tot if $county =~ /26005/; } print "Total for county 26005: $total\n"; __END__ 26005 2004 1 26005 2004 2 26005 2004 3 26004 2004 1 26003 2004 1
