Thank you! Works. I have a few more questions! I am working on converting a program from perl to PHP as it is the new language of choice at our office.
I have been using printf statements in perl to format data. Is there a similar funtion in php? Here is an example from the perl program: printf NEW ("%-5.5s",$fields); This will print exactly 5 characters, I also use this format to make sure the lines are exactly 255 characters long: printf NEW ("%-193.193s"); Is there something similar in php. Thanks for everyone's help and patience. -Scott On Fri, 8 Feb 2002, Jerry Verhoef (UGBI) wrote: > $aFile=file(<FILENAME>); > > //$aFile contains the unwanted line > echo $aFile; // displays line 2 > echo $aFile[n]; // displays line n where n is an positieve interger and not > greater then the number of lines in the file -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
