one solution if want fields in a file into each array

Hi Everyone,
This is just my method to if want fields in a file into each array.
[root@]# cat /tmp/3.txt
00:00:01        1
00:00:02        2
00:00:03        33
[root@]# cat
@field1 = `cat '/tmp/3.txt' | cut -f1 -d'\t'`;
print $field1[0];
[root@]# ./

As we can see, use this way, then we cut -f2, then can store the 2nd field into an array.

I know this is not a very good efficent way to store each field into each array for a file, but it is just what i can think it out.

Why do you call external programs for things Perl can do by itself?

use strict;
use warnings;

my @field1 = map { (split /\t/)[0] } <>;

It expects input via stdin or a file provided, so call it as either of these:
perl /tmp/3.txt
cat /tmp/3.txt | perl
perl </tmp/3.txt

Besides, it isn't meant to do anything, but to demonstrate how you can replace your system call to cat and cut with pure Perl, shaving off quite some time and resources off a run.
