Are you running this on Win32? If so, try this one (which
will not work in a Unix shell):
perl -le"$x+=ord,print qq|$_ - |,ord for split//,HOLYBIBLE;print qq|To
The problem is that Win32 wants the whole expression
wrapped in double quotes (not single quotes), and Unix shells will interpolate
any tokens in double quotes before Perl gets a chance to
execute. This results in Yet Another
Platform Dependance for Perl one-liners that contain dollar
signs. You can escape the quotes, but that gets ugly
(uglier?) real quick. For example, this should work on both
platforms (but since i don't have a Win32 box available,
i can't test it on that platform):
perl -le"\$x+=ord,print\"\$_ - \",ord for split//,HOLYBIBLE;print\"Tot
Update - nope, the previous one only works on Unix shells,
Win32 doesn't need (or like) the escaped dollar signs.
Thanks for testing this for me, BlueBlazerRegular
