Decompose ANSI X12 transmission into individual documents.

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $ediFile = shift; my ($contents,$delim,$term,$txnCount,@transactions); { $/ = undef; open my $ifh,'<',$ediFile; $contents = <$ifh>; } ($delim,$term) = $contents =~ m/^ISA(.).{101}(.)/; $delim = quotemeta($delim); @transactions = $contents =~ m/(ST$delim.+?SE$delim\d+$delim\d+$term)/ +gs; ($txnCount) = $contents =~ m/${term}GE$delim(\d+)/; die "Parse error - transaction counts wrong" if ($txnCount != scalar @transactions); foreach my $transaction (@transactions) { # put into useful form for processing my @segments = split /$term/,$transaction; my ($segCount) = $transaction =~ m/${term}SE$delim(\d+)/; die "Parse error - segment counts wrong" if ($segCount != scalar @segments); my ($process_this); map { push @$process_this, [split /$delim/,$_] } @segments; print Dumper(\$process_this); }

EDI File:

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB)

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