Perl Text manipulation

Hello All,

I have been working on a great script to remotely gather server info and store it in a .txt that can be imported to .xls

I have been reading the hostnames that are in the /.shh/known_hosts file so I don't have to mess with passing a password - via ssh (not easy to do , by the way, but posibble) anyway...

I have been stripping the known_hosts file of the following , trying to get a clean hosts.txt file to use as my CONFIRMED list of servers with exchanged keys.

I have removed the follow:
- ssh key
- extra charaters and extended hostnames
(e.g. myserver vs myserver_backup) So I would remove the "_backup"
- duplicates

So now I have something like the following

hostname2,, hostname3, hostname3.yahoo.com
So I am looking to manage the text. move all hostnames to the first column and ip's to the 2nd comma separated spot. And move all single column enties to the bottom hostname first then ip's, but that doesn't really matter, just need to know how to manipulate the text, I know your going to say... reg expressions, but I want the easiest way or at least a way I can repeat and reuse for separate tasks.(something I understand)


I will then create an array and print them out via the array.

"@lines = map({[split /,/]} @lines);"

Pod::Text::Color(3pm)					 Perl Programmers Reference Guide				     Pod::Text::Color(3pm)

Pod::Text::Color - Convert POD data to formatted color ASCII text SYNOPSIS
use Pod::Text::Color; my $parser = Pod::Text::Color->new (sentence => 0, width => 78); # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT. $parser->parse_from_filehandle; # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt. $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt'); DESCRIPTION
Pod::Text::Color is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using ANSI color escape sequences. Apart from the color, it in all ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available options. Term::ANSIColor is used to get colors and therefore must be installed to use this module. BUGS
This is just a basic proof of concept. It should be seriously expanded to support configurable coloration via options passed to the constructor, and pod2text should be taught about those. SEE ALSO
Pod::Text, Pod::Simple The current version of this module is always available from its web site at <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/podlators/>. It is also part of the Perl core distribution as of 5.6.0. AUTHOR
