( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I can do this:
$ perl -e 'print chr(219);'

but I can't seem to do this:
$ cat hitters | perl -e 'while(<>){print substr($_,index($_,chr(219)));}'

from this: hitters file

can someone give me a hint please? thank you...
BTW it works if I do:
$ cat hitters | perl -e 'while(<>){print substr($_,index($_,Pollo));}'
so I can search by text, but just don't know how to search on that character...

In reply to search for chr() fails by tbone654
