No.

hint: Have a look at at 'logical or' in perlop

    Ok, fair enough. But I've tried it and it's not showing me the love in terms of actually working !

    I've tried everything... all the examples here, creating new code based around a for loop, everything but I still can't get it to come up with the right answer.

    By right answer, I mean my code at http://pastebin.com/mz3JiSQV .... coming up with the same answer when asked to calculate for a part of a file that it does when asked to come up with a calculation for a full file (created by using "Dd" to extract from the full file into a second file.

    I'm running out of ideas, totally lost and completely frustrated. Surely its not an impossibility for Perl to accomplish such a simple task ?!?

      I've tried everything...

      Well, that code in that patebin doesn't actually show that, for example none of the logic/variable-manipulation from your original question ( Byte ranges of binary files ) shows up in that pastebin

      Maybe you'd like to forget about variables for a minute and describe the algorithm you're trying to implement in words?
