Title: Partition information with Perl
In this assignment, you will write a Perl program that reads from a file similar to the Unix’ file mtab (a file that contains information about the filesystem partitions). Your program will process options and print the requested output to the standard output.
These are the specifications for your Perl program:
- The file containing your program must be named pl
- It must be invoked as:
partitionbrowser.pl option partition_file
The program must check that the partition_file argument is an existing and readable file. If not, it must print a message of your choice to the standard output and exit. The format for file partition_file and the values for the option argument are described below.
- File partition_file can have any arbitrary name. It must be a file of text with the following format:
- The file consists of an arbitrary, yet reasonable, number of lines (including, possibly, zero lines). Each line corresponds to a
- Each line must contain four fields separated by
- The four fields are: mount point, filesystem type, total space and used space.
- Field mount point is a Unix filename. Field filesystem type is a string of no more than 10 characters. Fields total space and used space are nonnegative integers represented as strings of no more than 10
The following example is the reference specification for the format of file partition_file:
/ ext3 10317828 4439828
/usr nfs 20635656 446188
/home ext3 2885780 2265324
/var ext4 2885780 1900002
