Hi;

I have a string "1234200202020020590010001020",
How to split it into ...
1234 20020202002059 001 0001 020
and assign into different variable according to the length.

If the string is "1234,20020202002059,001,0001,020",
How to split it into ...
1234 20020202002059 001 0001 020
and assign into different variable in a loop.


Cheers;

Here is one of the possible ways:

use strict;

my $s1 = "1234200202020020590010001020";

my @s1 = unpack "A4 A14 A3 A4 A3", $s1;
foreach (@s1) {
    print "$_ ";
}
print "\n";

my $s2 = "1234,20020202002059,001,0001,020";
my @s2 = split /,/, $s2;
foreach (@s2) {
    print "$_ ";
}
print "\n";
