( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

An old script of mine will do this:

#!/usr/bin/perl @fill= qw( .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ); if (scalar(@ARGV)) { foreach $file(@ARGV) { $size= -s $file; $form= length(sprintf("%x",$size))-1; ++$form unless $form; print "File: ",$file,"\n"; open (IN,$file); &dump(*IN, $form); close (IN) } } else { &dump(*STDIN, 4); } sub dump { local(*IN, $form)= @_; my ($buf, $i); while ($rb= read(IN, $buf, 16)) { @x= unpack("H2" x $rb, $buf); $buf=~ s/[\x00-\x1f\x7f-\xff]/./g; $buf.= ' ' x (16-length($buf)); printf ("%0${form}x0: %s [%s]\n" ,$i++, ,sprintf ("%s %s %s %s %s %s %s %s - %s %s %s %s %s +%s %s %s", @x, @fill) ,$buf ); } }
YES! No strict, No warnings... As I said above: It's old! I was younger that time... And not a monk!

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
