If you'd just communicate clearly, you'd be misunderstood less often, that's all. I only "blame" you for being terse and unclear.

    The let me be clear now.

    You said:"I've never written a Perl script that opens a text file in Notepad (or any interactive text editor), and I can't imagine why anyone else would.

    I offered you the name of a perl script, that has come with every perl distribution for at least the last 10 years and probably longer, that does exactly that.

    And that should and could have been end of ...

    You misunderstood, no one else did. So, own it.

      If you had made your point clearly at the outset instead of waiting until now, then you wouldn't have wasted my time as you did, and possibly also have contributed something of interest and use to others who are reading this PerlMonks thread.

        I made the contribution; that you're too thick to recognise it as such is your problem.
