It's a big ugly, but you can use select and $~ to change the format for a given filehandle. See perlform for more info. In the meantime, here is a brief example:

use strict; use warnings; open( my $outfh, '>', 'temp.txt' ) or die $!; my ( $var1, $var2 ) = ( 'one', 'two' ); my $oldfilehandle = select $outfh; $~ = "FORMAT1"; select $oldfilehandle; write $outfh; $oldfilehandle = select $outfh; $~ = "FORMAT2"; select $oldfilehandle; write $outfh; $oldfilehandle = select $outfh; $~ = "FORMAT1"; select $oldfilehandle; write $outfh; format FORMAT1 = @<<<<< @<<<<< $var1, $var2 . format FORMAT2 = @<<<<<XXX@<<<<< $var2, $var1 . close $outfh;
And the output file:
one two two XXXone one two

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.
