Technically correct if the OP's true intention was to replace only the first occurrence of each item in each line where it occurs. I tend to believe the OP probably wanted to replace all occurrences, not just one per line. I know you, jdporter (dmorgo bows) already know what character is missing ;-) but for the OP's benefit, adding a 'g' modifier would do the trick:

#!/usr/bin/perl -pi s/this/that/g; # substitutes this with that s/one/two/g; # substitutes one with two

[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
[Discipulus]: it's me? ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena could it be a quoting issue? I just tried find with -exec on the command line. find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \;
[Tanktalus]: No, I know who he is, nice try. But if you're hiring, let me know :)
[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, not a quoting error. I can't run it on the command line. It is when I put it in qx() where it falls apart.
Discipulus hired to use Perl in Eataly? haired maybe
[choroba]: We're hiring
