Subject: extracting data at a specific displacement
Date: Jun 11 2000 6:59PM
I'm a mainframe programmer with a minimal amount of experience with perl.
Is there a way to extract data from a flat file based on a specific
displacement and length?
Until now I've been using regular expressions to match the data I need, but
I find this
very time consuming when I know I want bytes 43-63 no matter what it
