Ok, I've been trying to break things down with the info you have provided, intially with a simpler problem so I can work out whats going on. I'm trying to print the year from the title in a file called csv3 (which contains 1989 in the title) using the following code but it isn't printing anything, what am I doing wrong?
#!/bin/perl open CSV3, "<csv3" or die; while (<CSV3>) { chomp; my ($title) = $_ =~ /^.+?,\s*([^,]+?),/; #/ match the title my %words; $words{$_}++ for split /\s+/, $title; #/ get words ## Collect unique words #+ # my @titlewords = keys(%words); + my @titlewords = keys(%words); #print "$title" } sub find_year { my( $str ) = @_; my $year; $year = $1 if( $str =~ /\b((?:19|20)\d\d)\b/ ); return $year } &find_year ($title);
I would have thought the   &find_year ($title); would have taken the title and applied the subroutine to this string, picking out the 1989?

  • 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).
