in thread 'perl -p' ne 'cat'

I often add cases of test data after __END__ or __DATA__ in scripts that use while(<>) loops --- and I used to always switch between <> and <DATA> for testing purposes (and usually forgot to switch back when done). I recall being quite happy a few years back when I realized ("Doh!") I could just leave the bare diamond op and run the script on the test data via  perl -w < Actually, I mostly test within the editor by sending the buffer to a filter of  perl -w with output directed to another buffer, but its the same thing.
