Hi

I have a csv file with 4003 lines and the file name is "testnow.csv"
I want to split this csv file into 41 csv files, I mean each csv file cannot have more than 100 lines
and the new csv file name should be somthing like this

testnow_1.csv
testnow_2.csv
testnow_3.csv
.....

testnow_41.csv

Thanks,

my $num = 1;
open(my $csv_in, '<', 'testnow.csv') or die "failed to open testnow.csv <$!>";
open(my $csv_out, '<', "testnow_$num.csv") or die "failed to open testnow_$num.csv <$!>";

while (my $line = <$csv_in>) {
    print $csv_out $line;
    if (0 == $. % 100) {
        close $csv_out;
        $num++;
        open($csv_out, '<', "testnow_$num.csv") or die "failed to open testnow_$num.csv <$!>";
    }
}
close $csv_out;
close $csv_in;

small problem with your script, in order to use your script the files should be readily created before hand.
But is it possible to create the file along with the other logic.


Thanks

You said you have a csv file with 4003 lines
But if you need to create it, that can be done if you have the logic to generate the contents.

That's not the case. Did you try it?

The code I gave does require the input csv file to already exist but not the output file.

I just noticed that I have a typo in the code which will cause it to fail.  I opened the output file in read mode, which certainly is not what is wanted.

Change:
open(my $csv_out, '<', "testnow_$num.csv")

Open in new window


To:
open(my $csv_out, '>', "testnow_$num.csv")
