in reply to help me on seek and tell function

Discover perlfaq. Specifically from perlfaq5 read How do I change one line in a file/delete a line in a file/insert a line in the middle of a file/append to the beginning of a file?

Inplace editing may be what you want.

perl -pi.bak -e 's/this string/that string/g' some.file

cheers

[Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
[Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
[Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
[GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
