in reply to multiple file operations using perl one-liners

Safer and no longer:

perl -e'while(<>) { chomp; system zip => "-d", $_, "*exe*" }' oldfiles

Error checking (like a simple '-Mautodie' or 'or die "system: $?\n"') wouldn't hurt either.

[stevieb]: so, it's -34c today, and some of my water pipes are frozen and one burst. sigh
[stevieb]: it doesn't seem as though "there's an app for that"
[ambrus]: burst water pipe sucks
[Corion]: ambrus: Ugh - yes, that really sucks!
[stevieb]: good thing is that both sides of the break are completely frozen, so I was able to shut off the water to the building before any water leaks. I told the landlord last year to insulate that specific area better
[Corion]: stevieb: Our SV overlords don't know what "frozen pipe" means and think it's something like "frozen yogurt"
