This is not a homework assignment.
I have the following statements within a script:
  @fields=split /\s+/,$line;  ;  #Split the line at semicolons
  print FH "$fields[0]\n"; #Print the first field

How is it that I would alter the print statment so that it prints multiple fields.  I tried the following but they failed:
  print FH "$fields[0,2] \n"; #Print the first field
  print FH "$fields[0...5] \n"; #Print the first field

Thanks for your help.

ozo has already given you the solution
@fields=split /\s+/,$line;  ;  #Split the line at semicolons

but the above line dosent split on semicolons, it splits on spaces
to split a line on semicolons ->
@fields=split(/;/,$line);

prady_21, you are correct.  I was thinking of semicolons when I typed the comment.  I did want it to split on whitespaces.

Ozo, I am awarding the points to you.  Thank you both.
