This may be trivial, but it is handy when you have to mark the version of a script running on various output, particularly when there are a number of processes and a great deal of data--- providing the thicket to get lost in!
#!/usr/bin/perl # -- use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; use feature ":5.10"; use autodie; use version 0.77; use Data::Dumper::Simple; our $VERSION = '0.042'; # # variations on a theme as needed (not by Thomis Talis) # #sign_on(); #sign_on(*STDOUT); #my $fh; #open($fh,'>','ttime.log'); #sign_on($fh); # # NOTE: this will leave the program extension on to differentiate # between running under cygwin/unix where I typically strip off the # extension (cuts down on typing) as compared to a dos box where I # don't have to type the extension and therefore leave it alone... # sign_on(); sub sign_on { my $out = @_ ? shift : *STDERR; my $date = localtime(); (my $program = $0) =~ (s/.*(?:\/|\\)(.*?..*$)/$1/); my $version = version->parse($VERSION); print $out "$program v$version, $date\n"; }
Ignore the stupid program title and the use Data::Dumper::Simple; it is part of my template based boiler plate...

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.
