Question by Steven: How do I put each character in a text file on individual lines using a perl script?
I have a text file with a large number of letters (representing a DNA sequence) with 100 letters on each line. How can I manipulate the file so that each line in the perl script contains one character?
Answer by Tizio 008
if you mean you want loop over each letter of every line, something like
while($ line =
@letters = split //, $ line;
foreach $ l ( @letters )
print $ l;
or something similar.
