    Are you on Unix or on Windows? On Unix, the shell would interpolate $f in double quoted strings, so it's usually easier to use single quotes for Perl one-liners...  OTOH, on Windows you'd have to use double quotes, as single quotes don't work (as quotes) with the standard shell...

      I am on Unix, Now I understand it. Thanks

    Try executing as below

    perl -i.bak -ne"print if "\$f" ||= /1\.0/" file

    In unix the shell interprets the $f. So you were unable to execute.

    The great pleasure in my life is doing what people say you cannot do.
