I have the following data record in a scsi_test file that I would like to convert into a html table using perl

Here's the data record....

__Data__
scsi_test_hotswap
stop
Passed
1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
2. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld
1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
2. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld

__Data__
scsi_test_memory_leakage
stop
Passed
1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
2. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld
3. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
4. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld

__Data__
scsi_test_scatter_gatter


Starting Code...
--------------------
#!/usr/bin/perl

use warnings;
use strict;

# Html table tag variables

my $open_table ="<table border=\"1\">";
my $close_table ="</table>";
my $open_row ="<tr>";
my $close_row ="</tr>";
my $open_column_header ="<th>";
my $close_column_header ="</th>";
my $open_column_data ="<td>";
my $close_column_data ="</td>";
my $open_color_blue ="<font color=\"#0000ff\">";
my $close_color_blue ="</font>";
my $blank_column ="<tr></tr>";


my @first_record_row; # this should include the first element and element starting with 1. from the whole_record array
                        excluding the __Data__ input record separator.
my @additional_record_rows; # this should include the remaining elements in the whole_record array.

# Input Record Separator
$/='__Data__';


# Read In file

open FH,'<',"scsi_test" or die $!;


while(<FH>)
{
        s/^\s+//;
        s/^\s+$//;

   
    print "@whole_record","\n";

    foreach (@whole_record)
    {
       print $whole_record[1],"\n";
      # push @first_record_row = grep(m/^1\..*/,@whole_record);
      # print @first_record_row;

    }


Output should look like this....

row_1 -----> scsi_test_hotswap                  Passed          1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
row_2 ----->                                                                      2. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
row_3 ----->                                                                      3. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
row_4 ----->                                                                      4. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
row_5 -----> blank line row
row_6 -----> scsi_test_memory_leakage     Passed          1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld          
row_7 ----->                                                                       2. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld
row_8 ----->                                                                       3. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld

Side note, the text upto the hypen should be color blue blod as in, dldldld -, and excluding the line number.

This should give you a start.

To make it easier to test I changed it so it takes input from stdin, so run it like this:

    perl makeTab.pl scsi.test >scsiTest.html

#!/usr/bin/perl


# Html table tag variables

my $open_table ="<table border=\"1\">";
my $close_table ="</table>";
my $open_row ="<tr>";
my $close_row ="</tr>";
my $open_column_header ="<th>";
my $close_column_header ="</th>";
my $open_column_data ="<td>";
my $close_column_data ="</td>";
my $open_color_blue ="<font color=\"#0000ff\">";
my $close_color_blue ="</font>";
my $blank_column ="<tr></tr>";


print $open_table;

while(<>)
{
	s/[\r\n]//g;
	if ( /__Data__/ )
	{
		$testname = <>;
		if ( $testname eq '' ) { last; }
		$testname =~ s/[\r\n]//g;
		
		$stopline = <>;
		if ( $stopline eq '' ) { last; }
		$stopline =~ s/[\r\n]//g;
		if ( $stopline ne 'stop' ) { die "expected stop\n"; }

		$pass = <>;
		if ( $pass eq '' ) { last; }
		$pass =~ s/[\r\n]//g;

		while ( <> )
		{
			if ( ! ( /^[0-9]/ ) ) { last; }

			$detailline = $_;

			print $open_row;
			print $open_column_data;
			print $testname;
			print $close_column_data . $open_column_data;
			print $pass;
			print $close_column_data . $open_column_data;
			print $detailline;
			print $close_column_data . $close_row;


		}
	}
}

print $close_table;

A little cleaner.

#!/usr/bin/perl


# Html table tag variables

my $open_table ="<table border=\"1\">";
my $close_table ="</table>";
my $open_row ="<tr>";
my $close_row ="</tr>";
my $open_column_header ="<th>";
my $close_column_header ="</th>";
my $open_column_data ="<td>";
my $close_column_data ="</td>";
my $open_color_blue ="<font color=\"#0000ff\">";
my $close_color_blue ="</font>";
my $blank_column ="<tr></tr>";


print $open_table;

while(<>)
{
	s/[\r\n]//g;
	if ( /__Data__/ )
	{
		$testname = <>;
		if ( $testname eq '' ) { last; }
		$testname =~ s/[\r\n]//g;
		
		$stopline = <>;
		if ( $stopline eq '' ) { last; }
		$stopline =~ s/[\r\n]//g;
		if ( $stopline ne 'stop' ) { die "**** expected stop line not founc\n"; }

		$pass = <>;
		if ( $pass eq '' ) { last; }
		$pass =~ s/[\r\n]//g;

		while ( <> )
		{
			if ( ! ( /^[0-9]/ ) ) { $quit = 1; last; }

			$detailline = $_;
			$detailline =~ s/[\r\n]//g;

			print $open_row;
			print $open_column_data;
			print $testname;
			print $close_column_data . $open_column_data;
			print $pass;
			print $close_column_data . $open_column_data;
			print $detailline;
			print $close_column_data . $close_row;
			print "\n";
		}
		if ( $quit && ( $_ eq '' ) ) { last; }
	}
}

print $close_table;

Open in new window


The output:

c:\temp>perl makeTab.pl scsi_test
<table border="1"><tr><td>scsi_test_hotswap</td><td>Passed</td><td>1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_hotswap</td><td>Passed</td><td>2. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_hotswap</td><td>Passed</td><td>1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_hotswap</td><td>Passed</td><td>2. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_memory_leakage</td><td>Passed</td><td>1. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_memory_leakage</td><td>Passed</td><td>2. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_memory_leakage</td><td>Passed</td><td>3. dldldld - dldldldldldldldld</td></tr>
<tr><td>scsi_test_memory_leakage</td><td>Passed</td><td>4. dldldld - dldldldldlldldldld</td></tr>
</table>
