-p00 irritates me, I suppose you mean the equivalent to -p -00 , which doesn't mean slurping the whole file, but reading by paragraph.

Slurping is bound to anything bigger -0400

C:\tmp\files>type x 1:onebla 2:onebla 3:onebla 1:twobla 2:twobla 3:twobla 1:threebla 2:threebla 3:threebla C:\tmp\files>perl -n00 -E"say'>>';print;say'<<'" x >> 1:onebla 2:onebla 3:onebla << >> 1:twobla 2:twobla 3:twobla << >> 1:threebla 2:threebla 3:threebla << C:\tmp\files>perl -n0777 -E"say'>>';print;say'<<'" x >> 1:onebla 2:onebla 3:onebla 1:twobla 2:twobla 3:twobla 1:threebla 2:threebla 3:threebla <<

from perlrun

-0[octal/hexadecimal]

specifies the input record separator ( $/ ) as an octal or hexadecimal number. If there are no digits, the null character is the separator. Other switches may precede or follow the digits. For example, if you have a version of find which can print filenames terminated by the null character, you can say this:

  1. find . -name '*.orig' -print0 | perl -n0e unlink

The special value 00 will cause Perl to slurp files in paragraph mode. Any value 0400 or above will cause Perl to slurp files whole, but by convention the value 0777 is the one normally used for this purpose.

You can also specify the separator character using hexadecimal notation: -0xHHH..., where the H are valid hexadecimal digits. Unlike the octal form, this one may be used to specify any Unicode character, even those beyond 0xFF. So if you really want a record separator of 0777, specify it as -0x1FF. (This means that you cannot use the -x option with a directory name that consists of hexadecimal digits, or else Perl will think you have specified a hex number to -0.)

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.
