Array element & string variable


I am trying to assign
$string = $a[0]; #a[0]= 10100

print " $string"; # showing 10100

I am using this $string as $result = index($string, $char, $offset);

As above, is not capturing binary nos. in following format;
$string = '10100';

so index is not working.

kindly suggest.

Hi mate!

Is it Perl Smilie

$result = index($string, $char, $offset);

What did you expect $result to be Smilie Did you set $char Smilie Did you set $offset Smilie
Are you sure index is the right function to get that thing done Smilie Smilie Using the Perl index() function

Please post your complete script and the wanted output if you need further help Smilie

PS: Are you the guy with Perl 8.5? Smilie Smilie

It is capturing binary nos. in the index format.It was the looping statement that was not allowing it to read.Now I corrected it.

Thank you
