Help. Get words between commas... please help!!!
I need to grab specific parts of a configuration file and copy them to another .txt file.
A sample of the configuration:
interface gigabitEthernet 3/0/0.1445
vlan id 1445
ip description IRA 1934962; RJIRCS_EHI-101; HUAWEI; IRA-RJ-MAN-SWTL3-J01; ge-3/0/5.1445
What I need is the word between the first and second ";". This word always changes, so I need to check the line that starts with "ip description" (there's always a space before it) and grab it to a file. There could be several commands like that on one file, so I need to append.
As I'm a telecommunication guy, Perl is really not my expertise, so I just got the scipt below, to verify I was reading line by line. That's what I got so far.
open (FILE, "<BRAS.txt");
my($line) = $_;
Can anyone help, PLEASE!!!!
Thanks so much
