[Your Mother]: They would think so.
[jdporter]: ok, I need a recipe for piping lines "through" an external program which is itself a filter
[jdporter]: without using a tmp file
[1nickt]: tobyink perl -MTypes::Standard= is_Int -Mstrict -wE 'say 1 if is_Int 1.0'
[jdporter]: so that I can use the existing expand unix util. Otherwise, I'll probably use Text::Tabs.
[1nickt]: pryrt I guess I don;t really care if user 42 logs on as 42.0 ... more of an academic question at this point.
[LanX]: jdporter: open PIPE,'-|' ?
[LanX]: oh you want the result line by line?
[jdporter]: ok, LanX, then what?
