I've corrected that in my next post. Try this one
Code:
 
perl -lane 'BEGIN{print "Header1,Header2,Header3,Header4"}print "$F[0],$F[1],$F[2] $F[3],$F[4]"' input

Hi getmmg,

Yes this is fine with me. Thanks man!.

Now, I want to divide all the 2nd fields by 100. So if my 2nd field is 500 and divide it to 100 it will become 5. Or I want to remove the 2 zeros from the 2nd field.

INPUT:
Code:
Header1,Header2,Header3,Header4

Pete,

Please post all your requirement at once. It would be easy that way.

Code:
perl -lane 'BEGIN{print "Header1,Header2,Header3,Header4"}print "$F[0],".$F[1]/100.",$F[2] $F[3],$F[4]"' input
