Perl4Win32: prettify code syntaxby Intrepid (Deacon)
|on Jul 20, 2000 at 11:01 UTC||Need Help??|
$clp=Win32::Clipboard(); $it=$clp->Get(); open(CH,\"^|perl -S
code2html -v -lperl -ohtml-dark ^>$tmp\") or die $!;
print CH $it; close CH; $tmp=~s#\\\\#/#g; open(TF,$tmp);
read(TF,$it,(-s $tmp));$clp->Set($it); unlink $tmp;"
Please note that this looks all wrong to UNI* gurus who see the quoting through typical shell rules that apply there; Win is different and there's a couple of not-well-known Windoze shell escaping tricks demonstrated in this code, as well.
Also shows how to open a pipe to a process to be written to by Perl, has the ugly kludge of writing a tmp file -- if anyone knows a *Windoze*-workable way to avoid this please comment.
