in reply to Removing leading whitespace from a file?

An alternative:

use Tie::File; tie @file, 'Tie::File', 'test.txt'; s/^\s+// for @file;
Not the most efficient solution, but I'd prefer it to setting $^I, if it were in a larger program.

The easiest solution was already mentioned:

perl -i -pe's/^\s+//' test.txt

- Yes, I reinvent wheels.

[chacham]: it is a nice ide. its just that upgrading it always causes issues with mismatched versions of whatever
[Corion]: chacham: Oh, yes, reinstalling all the SDK versions and Gradle and whatnot, yes, even in the short time I used it (2 weeks?) I felt that pain
[chacham]: right now im editing the versions in the applications gradle file to use a version it wants. sheesh.
[Corion]: Ow, "but you're not supposed to do that" ;)
