in thread more ways to filesize

Actually, it's probably better written as:

if (my $size = -s $file)

..or, if you don't like the assignment in the if, you can keep the (oh-so-slight..) efficiency increase by saying:

if (-s $file) my $size = -s _;

perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'
