DrAxeman, In your previous post: Pre-process csv files before using, I replied with an inplace edit code. In that I use something called $. which keeps track of the current line number processed. So if you really want to do conversion of some sort then you can check for  $. != 1 and then apply the conversion for the rest of the code.

update: As graff pointed you shouldn't need the conversion function. Take this code for example

perl -e'$val = 9e-05; print "value = ", $val*2, $/;' __END__ value = 0.00018

If you find the command line version of the program confusing just focus on the pieces after -e'. Everything is a regular perl code. I am just assingning a value using scientific notation and use it in regular airthmetic and get expexted results. Unless you are doing something fancy with your conversion i wouldn't go for a module

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
