I'm just getting into the specifics of what I need to do, but for right now I would like just basic guidance. I have a fixed width text file from which I need to pull data and append to another fixed width file, with a different schema. What is the basic, perl script structure to pull data in certain positions from the first file and append this data in certain positions to the output file?
For instance, how would I pull the data from positions 9-15 from the source file and place this data in positions 25-31 in the output file? Thanks in advance.
