in reply to command line perl reading from STDIN

Sometimes it's useful to let Perl tell you what it thinks about the code you give it to execute (e.g., "where does the fourth lineread come from?"):

>perl -MO=Deparse -ne "$s=<>;<>;<>;chomp($s);print length($s).\"\n\"; " LINE: while (defined($_ = <ARGV>)) { $s = <ARGV>; <ARGV>; <ARGV>; chomp $s; print length($s) . "\n"; } -e syntax OK

Use  -MO=Deparse,-p   for even gorier details. See B::Deparse and O.
