in thread Is there a limit on STDIN string size 259?

blakem, I think he ment that this was the largest string he could handle. For good measure, I ran your line with the numbers 274,74,85,85 and it works on my box.

I repeated this with yesterdays framechat log (nice and long textfile):

perl -e '$a=join "", <STDIN>; $a=~tr/\n/ /s; print $a'\ </tmp/20011113.txt | \ perl -e '$_=<STDIN>; foreach(split){print "$_\n"}' | less
Works. Would this mean that there is an issue with the solaris shell?

[ikegami]: That should be ${ $hash{$key} }[$_] because it's $a[$_] when you don't use a ref.
[oiskuu]: James, that's an array slice you have there (over some hash value)
