in reply to upgrade broke perl?

I'd suggest using the Ubuntu package manager.
Type this at the command line:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install perl

    It sounds like eppo has broken the perl install on his system too much for that to work.

    As others have said, it is usualy not a good idea to modify the system perl install. This applies double on Debian derived distros such as Ubuntu, because the system package manager uses perl internaly, so if you break perl you are likey to break the whole system to the point that it is impossible to re-install perl (or anything else), forcing you to re-instal the whole system to get it working again.

[Corion]: erix: Yes, but that's mostly for skipping characters you'll never read, but this approach skips the problem of needing to load more data while looking at a half-match
[Corion]: I mostly wonder how I can add this "reversal" to my toolchest, and if it's worth it or just clever
[choroba]: It should greatly simplify the parsing code, no flags or additional reading of the next buffer needed
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's why I like that approach; it seems even quite obvious in retrospect to me, but many things are in hindsight ;)
