in reply to How-To on Perl one-liners

by inference, the big issue for you is apt to be correctly escaping DOS shell characters such as \, on which answers can be found at MS or perhaps even with a supersearch here.

Re the rest, you can turn a script-file into a one liner for most tasks on the order of what you pseudo-coded by simply removing the returns. Now, yes, that's a tad oversimplified, but as a mechanism for learning what you ask about, those that don't work are probably as instructive as those that do

    I appreciate the advice. It reminds me that I need to be explicit about what platform I'm using. Too much time talking only to people who use one OS limits my thinking. I use Linux, but it is plainly very good to know about shell escapes. Thanks again.
