You asked for a oneliner, which by I think you mean to give each function separately, so for "exp", it would be:

perl -pi -e 's/\bc?${tgt}[fl]?\b/$tgt/g' -s -- -tgt=exp *.c;

The problem is fabs, which means you need to consider it separately:

perl -pi -e 'for $tgt(qw(exp log pow sqrt sin cos tan asin acos atan sinh cosh tanh asinh acosh atanh)){ s/\bc?${tgt}[fl]?\b/$tgt/g };s/\b[cf]abs[fl]?\b/fabs/g' *.c;

addendum, with the | or you wanted, it would be:

perl -pi -e 's/\bc?(exp|log|pow|sqrt|sin|cos|tan|asin|acos|atan|sinh|c +osh|tanh|asinh|acosh|atanh)[fl]?\b/$1/g; s/\b[cf]abs[fl]?\b/fabs/g'

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
