( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

An adaptation of this script might work in that regard. It was a shell script I hacked together to reformat occasionally as I worked on things. Given one or more files on the command line, it looks to see if there is a .tdy version of the file present (creating an empty one if not), checks if the current version and the .tdy version differ, and if so, performs a tidy (setting the lines 123 characters-personal preference), not replacing the original if a .ERR file was produced. The .tdy file was also left in place for future comparison.

#!/bin/bash PERLTIDY='/usr/local/bin/perltidy -l 123 ' TOUCH=/bin/touch DIFF=/usr/bin/diff WC=/usr/bin/wc CP=/bin/cp if [ $# -gt 0 ] then echo Command line: $0 $@ for file in $@ do if [ ! -e $file.tdy ] then $TOUCH $file.tdy fi if [ `$DIFF -q $file $file.tdy | $WC -l` -gt 0 ] then $PERLTIDY $file if [ -e $file.ERR ] then echo Error detected-not replacing else $CP -v $file.tdy $file fi else echo Skipping $file - perltidy on file not necessary fi done else echo Usage: $0 filename fi

Update (20 Jan 2004): Added absolute paths to utilities used, to prevent issues with pathing.

Title:
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.
