punch_card_don has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
If I change the print to
If I change it to
But it will not output
as I want. Not even if I try
I know, pipe, perl control character....what's the trick to get it to print what I want?
Aie - holiday Monday programming - ok, time to take my lumps -
the code I provided was a short form for the real code which was
where more scanning the code revealed this helpful little line
in ...a bunch more stuff..., which of course was the wrong place for it. Should'a been after the lop and before the print.
So, lessons #3,673,592 & #3,673,593: don't code half asleep on a holiday Monday; post real code or at least a sanitized version of it, not shortcuts.
Let the flagellation begin.
