Lightbulb Its PERL + Comma separated seventh field

Hi Friends,

I'm working on a perl script, which seems to be simpler. But I'm very new to PERL scripting.

I have a comma separated data file, from which I need to extract only the seventh field data out of available twenty fields to an array using perl.

Any help would be much appreciated.

With Regards / Mysore Ganapati.

Just split the input record and push the seventh field into an array.

Ganapati, you will get much more help from people on this forum if you post what you
have come up with so far. People are more than willing to help but it can be diffcult to
see exactly where you need help without seeing what you have attempted so far.

A simple Web search will show you plenty of examples of how to do what you want to do.
