in thread The three virtues of Perl are CONFLICTING!

<sigh> I'm an emacs sort of person myself. I do not, however, claim that open source cannot be written with anything but a GNU editor, however, I find it the best editor for my "style of stuff", whatever that may be. I hope to die and continue to use emacs; I currently use it for all but the tiniest of jobs, for which I use pico -- never vi(m).

    You may want to look at jove for small jobs, it's roughly the size of vi but with the common macros and a minimalist feature-set of emacs. There's also jed and µemacs; the latter does not default to a decent usable set of macros though.

    perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"

[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
[MidLifeXis]: On the back end, however, that doesn't mean that i have to use that value to indicate "undefined", no matter how much he thinks I should.
