Hello,
For a report I need to count every rererrer in an apache log that begin with "http://"
All others I need to account for as "N/A".
I am trying to use search/replace with no luck.
Anyone have any ideas?

Here is a snippet of the log:
---------------------------------------------------------------
-
http://blizzard.ist.una.edu/~ppickett/project/research.html
http://blizzard.ist.una.edu/~jhperez/a4/index.html
-

-
http://blizzard.ist.una.edu/~lschaller/a5/
-
http://blizzard.ist.una.edu/~jdfitzpatrick/a4/otherpage.html
http://blizzard.ist.una.edu/~handersen/a5/index.html
-
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The report will list the most hits, I need the top hits to display "N'A"

Here is my attempt:
my $string7 = join('',@ref);
foreach $string7 (@ref)
{
   #$string =~ s/^http:\/\/./N\/A/mg;
   $string =~ s/-/N\/A/mg;
   print "$string7\n";
   
   $refer{$string7}++;
   $ref_tot++;
}

Sorry, this is what I was trying to post.  It got away from me.
This replaces your line 5.  It should replace non- http:// lines with N/A.
Is this what you're trying to do?

if ( ! ( $string =~ /^http\:\/\// ) ) { $string = 'N/A'; }

I think that the code is fine except for the typo?

So long as the sample provided is a true representation of the actual data

Try this:

while ( <> )
{
    if ( /^http\:\/\/([^\/]+)/ )
    {
        $refCount{$1}++;
    }
}

foreach $domain (keys(%refCount))
{
    push @lines, sprintf("%6d", $refCount{$domain}) . "\t" . $domain . "\n";
}

print sort {b <=> a} @lines;
