in reply to Removing delimiter

You're getting two things mixed up. The code you were using is meant to be run from the command line, not inside a script. Your script should look something like:

#!C:/Perl/bin/perl.exe -pi.bak tr/,//d;

And run it like so:

C:\> testdata.txt
I hope this helps. This of course assumes that you just want to remove the commas and not replace them with anything else.
