in thread remember perl one-liners

thanks for that pointer, that sounded like it could solve the problem, but i didn't...

i think the lithist option means a multiline command like:

$ for i in *.pl do echo $i done $ <arrow up> $ for i in *.pl ; do echo $i; done $ shopt -s lithist $ <arrow up> $ for i in *.pl do echo $i done
the problem appears if command arguments itself have newlines, an easy example is
$ echo " word "
so it would work if one calls perl with multiple -e args:
$ perl -wle'print 1;' \ -e 'print 2;'
but that's ugly, isn't it? =)

update: but i still think it should work because if i type in a multiline perl command and type arrow-up immediately after that i get all my lines like i typed them in. just storing in the history doesn't seem to work.

    Ahh ... makes sense - thought that would help : I tried the echo experiment with cmdhist set and it put echo into history file as one (multi-line) entry - now reading it back in ... is a whole other beast ... this does not do exactly what you require but it does allow multi-line liners to be read back in as one line: after the first $hist substitution in :
    $hist =~ s/\s+/ /gm;
    so I can now add (from history output):
    ... 601 perl -MYAPE::Regex::Explain -e 'print YAPE::Regex::Explain->new(qr/(aaaaa(?:(?:(?!aaaaa).)*))/s)->ex +plain' 602 addhist
    perl -MYAPE::Regex::Explain -e 'print YAPE::Regex::Explain->new(qr/(aa +aaa(?:(?:(?!aaaaa).)*))/s)->explain'
    to my ~/.oneliners file = thank you again for posting this script - I am a big fan of oneliners and this script is a big help in keeping them around longer than my histsize ...
