Hello, I have below a script from a previous question-- I need to open an output file to put the results into. I want the outfile file to have the header "Chain A :" at the start of the results eg. ChainA :1,2,5,7,6,9 etc..... can anyone help?

#!/usr/bin/perl
                                                                                           
use strict;
use warnings;
                                                                                           
$_ = '---bbbb--bbbb';
                                                                                           
my @pos;
while (/\G.*?-/g) {
  push @pos, pos;
}

Hi paulieomeara,

you can

open(OUTFILE,">test.out") || die "can not open test.out";
print OUTFILE "Chain !: ".join(',',@pos);
