I am on my second day of Perl programming and I am stuck. The program
below will read a one line, 1 to 2 M file, test it, and, print some counts to another file. I cannot get past the open...infile.
Help! I need to get this done soon (and with "use strict").
Where did all of my spaces go???
========================= The Code ===========================
# We have two versions. Make sure to use the lastest.
if ( @ARGV
< 2 )
my $infile = shift @ARGV
my $outfile = shift @ARGV
open( my $infile_handle, "< $infile" ) or
Can't open input file "$infile".
open( my $outfile_handle, "> $outfile" ) or
Can't open output file "$outfile".
my $text = join( '', <$infile_handle> );
my $test_len = length( $test );
" , $test_len, "
# process the line and print results...
exit ( 0 );
