    can't we do the find and replace operation via perl on the entire text file , without taking it into an array

    like say find and replace on a file handler . sorry I am new to perl , so I don't have a lot of command on it

      perl -pi.bak -e 's/pattern/replace/g' filename.txt


      sorry I am new to perl

      :) I read perlintro every day, and I'm very old to perl :)
