I currently use text files as my database. I don't know how to use a delimited text file.
I am currently using the cut command to pull out my fields but this is a pain.
Here is an example of how i would populate my variable $foo with information.
system ("cut -c16-24 $file1 > $file2");
open (FILE, $file2);
$foo = <FILE>;
Would somebody please help me get started using a delimited database. I understand the concept i just don't know how to pull the information out.
