in reply to Grab Current Line of SVG File

What you would probably want to do is read line by line with:

while (my $line = <IN>) { #Do stuff with $line $line =~ s/rotate\(-180/rotate\(-0/g; #etc }
(The minimalist for loop you have reads the whole file in at once, then loops over the lines with the current line stored in $_. Your subsequent code implicitly uses $_ with the substitutions and whatnot, which is what is tripping you up I believe.)

You also have an issue with your opens; "$dirname/$in" || next is unlikely to do the next, since "$dirname/$in" isn't going to be false. You want to use "or" instead of "||" there for the precedence.

You may also want to upgrade to open my $inFileHandle, '<', "$dirname/$in" or next;, which will make it easy to pass $inFileHandle into functions in the future, but that's not important for what you're currently doing.

    You said "with the current line stored in $_" - that saved me - I was able to get the current code to do what I needed with that VERY helpful tidbit and using the index function to check for <path Thank you, Charles
