Updating flat text database files in perl

I tried doing it the old fashioned HTML way, but I found that I was typing in the same information over and over, (after all, Kate Winslet is always a star of Titanic).

Below is a basic example of how data in a flat file may appear and be used in a Perl program.

Bob|123 street|California|$200.00 Nathan|800 Street|Utah|$10.00 use strict; my (@users, $users, @display, $display); open (EXAMPLE, "; close(EXAMPLE); foreach $users (@users) In the above example, the Perl script first opens the and places the data into any array.

The approximately 10 movies a week certainly didn't merit a Microsoft SQL or Oracle.

After it has been loaded into its own array each segment of the array can be called, for example "$display[0]" is the first element of the array.

A good example of a flat file is a single text-only file that contains all the data needed for a program that is often separated by some kind of delimiter.

A flat database is much easier to understand and setup than a traditional database, but may be inadequate for any program that is frequently used or contains millions of entries.

Can also be a reference to an already opened filehandle.
