in reply to Reading Binary

You can use vec for this

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @letter = 'A'..'Z'; my $bits = pack "b*", "1001"; for (0..8*length($bits)-1) { print $letter[$_] if vec($bits,$_,1); } print "\n";

Good Day,

[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, there is MP3::Info/
[Discipulus]: too much complex qx when you know perl are better to avoid
[marioroy]: might need to backslash \'*.mp3\'
[marioroy]: It's a quoting issue inside qx. It's File::Find or qx. LA chooses qx. Almost there.
[marioroy]: Also \"%S\\\n\" oh my, not fun.
[Discipulus]: good night folks
[marioroy]: I will make a mp3info script that takes the -p "%S\n" args and test qx. I'm on the road, so will come back.
[marioroy]: All because File::Find is not fun for LA.
[marioroy]: good night Discipulus.
[Discipulus]: perl dreams to you all
