It's not at all important to get it right the first time. It's vitally important to get it right the last time.

I use some tilde-delimited .txt and .ini files as searchable databases. Running Win 7 32-bit. Perl may work faster than some routines I am currently using. If I want to work with a record in a file that looks like this:
ADVJSMF=Last~Familiar Name~First Name~Salutation~Street Address~City~State~zipcode~email address~work number~home number~etc. and I wanted to use a one-liner to retrieve info only in one field or manipulate only one field (for instance the email field) based on the identifier to the left of the equal sign, is there a way to do that? If so, I'd love to know how to do that.
In a similar database containing records, I also perform searches to find out whether someone has a birthday that falls within a few days of the search date I am using, but I could save that question for another time. Many thanks! Stuart

* use <pre>...</pre> to insert a plain code snippet.
* use <pre lang="lang">...</pre> to insert a syntax highlighted code snippet.
For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.
* use <code>...</code> to highlight a variable or a single shell command.
* use <a href="url" nospam>title</a> to insert links.
<a href="url" nospam>title</a>
* use other HTML tags, such as, <b>, <i>, <blockquote>, <sup>, <sub> for text formatting.
