Hi all,
Just a little query today! Can someone tell me what I need to add to the following code so that when the user types in y the file that's been dealt with will be appended to a new file called corpus......

Thanks a mil.!

print "Would you like to include this text in your corpus (Y/N)?\n";
     chomp ($string = <STDIN>);
                     if (uc($string) eq "Y")

lets assume the file whose info needs to be appended is called sub.txt.


here is the code that will do what you require.

#!/usr/bin/perl

$corpus="/tmp/corpus.txt";
$sub="/tmp/sub.txt";
print "Would you like to include this text in your corpus (Y/N)?\n";
chomp ($string = <STDIN>);

if ($string=~ /^y$/i){
  open (CORP,">>$corpus") || die $!;  ##  Open corpus file in append mode

  undef $/;
  open (SUB,"$sub") || die $!;  ##  Open the other file for reading
  $var=<SUB>; ##  Read entire file in a variable;
  close(SUB);
  $/="\n";

  print CORP $var;  ##  Write the info to the end of corpus!!
  close(CORP);

}
