This characters will not be modified (nor will numbers, if you had any).

    Nothing is modified, not even letters. Case is preserved.
    >perl -le "'aA' =~ /(.*)/i && print $1 aA

    Only the matching is affected. /i causes lower- and upper-case letters to match lower- and upper-case versions of itself.

    Maybe you were thinking of

    >perl -le "lc('aA') =~ /(.*)/ && print $1 aa

[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus we will be glad to have you here more frequently, tho ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
