Perl-Sensitive Sunglasses PerlMonks

 Need Help??
May I suggest that you learn to use the foreach loop in Perl, rather than the c-style for loop.

Do note that foreach is just an alternate spelling of for. for my $text (@searchtexts) { ... } is exactly equivalent to foreach my$text (@searchtexts) { ... }.

Either way, though, I can't remember the last time I used a C-style for loop in Perl. for ( [list] ) is so much nicer and avoids all those nasty off-by-one errors.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

• Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
• Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
• Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
• Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
• You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
 For: Use: & & < < > > [ [ ] ]
• Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?

 [Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window? [LanX]: I want the command line in the history [tye]: -Mouse [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file. [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy [Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history LanX damns the cult of CB ;-) LanX WTF WTF WTF [LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts [LanX]: Yeah option a doesn't go into history
