in reply to Disable animated GIFs and blinking text in Netscape

Several suggestions:

  • The -s switch to Perl allows you to use simple options at the command-line:
    % perl -s -e 'print $A, $B' -- -A -B=hello 1hello
  • Don't call perl from perl unless you have a good reason to. If you want to emulate Perl's in-place editing, then do so.
Here's my offering:
#!/usr/bin/perl -spi use strict; use vars qw( $gif $blink ); my $files; BEGIN { unless ((defined $gif or defined $blink) and @ARGV) { (my $exec = $0) =~ s!.*/!!; exit warn "usage: $exec [ -gif=[1|0] ] [ -blink=[1|0] ] files...\n +"; } $files = "@ARGV"; } if (defined $gif) { if ($gif) { s/ANIMEXTZ1\.0/ANIMEXTS1.0/, s/NOTSCAPE2\.0/NETSCAPE2.0/ + } else { s/ANIMEXTS1\.0/ANIMEXTZ1.0/, s/NETSCAPE2\.0/NOTSCAPE2.0/ } } if (defined $blink) { if ($blink) { s/blynk/blink/ } else { s/blink/blynk/ } } END { printf "Animated GIFs are %sabled in $files\n", ("dis","en")[$gif] if defined $gif; printf "Blinking text is %sabled in $files\n", ("dis","en")[$blink] if defined $blink; }
I'll comment on (or explain) the code as requested.

$_="goto+F.print+chop;\n=yhpaj";F1:eval
