I need to write a perl script which takes input as follows:-
perl abc.pl <input_file file1.log> <output_file file2.xml> <stringx1> <to be replaced by string y1> <stringx2> <to be replaced by string y2> .... <stringx.n> <to be replaced by string y.n>
logic:- file1.log contains some lines of text.
the stringx1 in file1.log gets replaced by string y1
the stringx2 in file1.log gets replaced by string y2
the stringxn in file1.log gets replaced by string yn
the new file file2.xml is created with the modifications..
sorry people, but i do not know perl at all...sorry for asking, if it was wrong to ask.
Not wrong to ask for HELP at all. We're very glad to help anyone who needs it. But if you want a script, you have to demonstrate that you're actually doing some work, not expecting someone to write it for you.
