Hi ,plese help me to solve the problem:

I have a file with content

Adress1    Adress2      ColumnA      ColumnB
----------- ------------   -------------- -------------
010FAC3  2345ABC     Text1           Text2
010AAB3  1345ABC     Text3           Text4
010BA13  1234567      Text5           Text6
.
.
.

Adress1 and Adress2 are some memory adreseses in HEX

I need a script in perl that read this file and add to the file column (Adress2-Adress1)in decimal and if it's not difficult sorted by this new column

Output file should be :
Adress1    Adress2     NewColumn(Adress2-Adress1 in decimal) ColumnA      ColumnB
010BA13  1234567      17992532                                               Text5           Text6
010AAB3  1345ABC     19116041                                               Text3           Text4
010FAC3  2345ABC     35872761                                               Text1           Text2

Please can somebody help me in solving this problem

Thanks,
Inga

while( $record = <file1> ){
