in reply to Command-line arguments to command-line Perl

I'm curious as to why you need to write a tcsh script at all. Writing scripts in csh (or tcsh) is generally frowned upon; see Csh Programming Considered Harmful for the gory details. Good old /bin/sh is more portable and a generally sounder programming language.

If you possibly can get away with it, however, I strongly urge you to consider writing the whole thing in Perl.

    eyepopslikeamosquito, I agree with you on this point. I usually script entirely in Perl and shy away from shell scripts on principle.

    In this instance, however, it was necessary to write a one-liner for inclusion in a previously existing shell script that couldn't have dependencies on external Perl scripts. An installation of Perl, however, is guaranteed on all target systems.
