in thread Secret Perl Operators: the boolean list squash operator, x!!

In addition, isn't there a mantra to the effect of "Perl is what perl does"?

If so, it's a bad mantra. People can't ever legitimately claim to know how to program in Perl if the definition of Perl changes with each daily build.

If Larry replaces perl.c with hello.c, does "Hello, World" become the new Perl? ;-)

[Your Mother]: Stick with what you know. Or post a SOPW and if it's not complicated I guarantee someone will answer; me if it's straightforward and no one else gets it better first.

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
[Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
[choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
[Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
[choroba]: grep is a filter, it selects elements from a list based on a boolean condition
[moritz]: you need to read the file in one go to do a multiline regex match
[erix]: ha ha, I like the Vigilante
[Lady_Aleena]: Forget it. I'm getting angry with it.
