EDIT: This code is wrong, see OP for correct version! Sorry...

It's much easier to develop one-liners on the command line because it can so rapidly scroll through history of revisions. I can get a few test runs deep into trouble fiddling around with it and get back to a working version by hitting the up arrow a few times. In many years I haven't found a more rapid, easier and fun way to explore and deploy the power of perl. After achieving my desire from the machine these mega one liners find themselves all sorts of places to extend the operating system with new commands and functions.

The way I'm posting them, dense and without triggering code wrap, makes it easy for me (and hopefully you) to copy directly from the webpage, to paste in a console. So you click download and see this gigantic one-liner that you want as a script? It depends on your operating system but for this script on Linux/Mac it goes something like this:

Control|Command + a to select all
Control|Command + c to copy selected text
In a terminal type: echo
Type one space
Control|Command + p to paste text
Type: | perltidy -st >cpanexe; nano cpanexe

Here's a handy blob of code to throw at a terminal that transforms itself into a proper script, saved to disk, opened in an editor. This can make any one liner into a script! Just echo a pasted one-liner to another one-liner via pipe and then pipe that to perltidy which you can direct to save a file and then open it in your favorite text editor:

echo perl -le'chomp(@_=`perldoc -T perllocal`); # List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN $_=join"\n",@_;@_=split/\"Module\"\s/; @_=grep/EXE_FILES:\s[^"]+/,@_;for(@_){@x=split/\n/; @x=grep/EXE|0m/,@x;push@z,@x}s/^\s+\*\s+\"([^\"]+).?/$1/ for@z; @_=grep/EXE_FILES/,@z;@_=map{substr($_,11,length($_))}@_;undef@z; for(@_){if(/\s/){@x=split/\s/;push@z,$_ for@x}else{push@z,$_}} %_=map{s/^\S+\///;$_=>1}@z;print$_ for sort{lc($a)cmp lc($b)}keys%_'| perl -e'@_=<STDIN>;print qq~\#\!/usr/bin/perl\n\nuse strict;~.qq~ use warnings;\n\n@_;~'|perltidy -st >cpanexe;nano cpanexe

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; chomp( @_ = `perldoc -T perllocal` ); # List EXE_FILES installed by CPAN $_ = join "\n", @_; @_ = split /\"Module\"\s/; @_ = grep /EXE_FILES:\s[^"]+/, @_; for (@_) { @x = split /\n/; @x = grep /EXE|0m/, @x; push @z, @x; } s/^\s+\*\s+\"([^\"]+).?/$1/ for @z; @_ = grep /EXE_FILES/, @z; @_ = map { substr( $_, 11, length($_) ) } @_; undef @z; for (@_) { if (/\s/) { @x = split /\s/; push @z, $_ for @x } else { push @z, $_ } } %_ = map { s/^\S+\///; $_ => 1 } @z; print $_ for sort { lc($a) cmp lc($b) } keys %_;
I don't see the problem with dense code. It makes sense to me because that's how it gets created at the command line. Perlmonks understand it just as well as their spoken language so i don't understand the criticism or why we're constantly hounded by the cult of whitespace. Learn how to use perltidy and the rest of your operating system to make it do what you want instead of complaining. It's much more productive! ☺

This is a one-liner! A tidy 20 lines. It gets 29 things done with perl to do something impossible:

chomp join split grep for split grep push s for 
grep map substr length undef for if split push 
for else push map s print for sort cmp keys

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).
