populating hash from a file??

Posted by revtopo (revtopo), 26 October 2007
hi there,

I have to populate a hash from a file which is tab delimited

my code is:

   my ($id, $window_start, $window_count, $counts) = split /\t/;
   my $window_id = "$id,$window_start";
   $window_counts{$window_id} =$counts;
how could we increment for each of the line in file

the file is  similar to this::
11, 500, 182
1,501, 1000, 2
1, 10001, 1500, 172

You are splitting the line on tab, but the sample data suggests that the fields are comma separated. Is this right?

Also, what exactly are you trying to increment?
