( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
In a bash shell, I get:
$ perl -nE "/: / and $c += (split/: /)[0]; if( eof(ARGV) ){ say qq[SUM +.$ARGV =$c]; $c=0 }" tmp_* syntax error at -e line 1, near "+=" syntax error at -e line 1, near "; =" Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.

And:

$ c=10 $ echo c c $ echo $c 10 $ echo "The total is: $c" The total is: 10 $ echo 'The total is: $c' The total is: $c
So within double quotes, the shell expands $variables, which of course happens *before* the shell hands the text over to the perl command. That is similar to the way the shell expands your glob: tmp_* and replaces it with a list of file names, which is what the perl command ends up seeing.
