Are you running this on Win32? If so, try this one (which will not work in a Unix shell):
perl -le"$x+=ord,print qq|$_ - |,ord for split//,HOLYBIBLE;print qq|To +tal: $x|"
The problem is that Win32 wants the whole expression wrapped in double quotes (not single quotes), and Unix shells will interpolate any tokens in double quotes before Perl gets a chance to execute. This results in Yet Another Platform Dependance for Perl one-liners that contain dollar signs. You can escape the quotes, but that gets ugly (uglier?) real quick. For example, this should work on both platforms (but since i don't have a Win32 box available, i can't test it on that platform):
perl -le"\$x+=ord,print\"\$_ - \",ord for split//,HOLYBIBLE;print\"Tot +al: \$x\""
Update - nope, the previous one only works on Unix shells, Win32 doesn't need (or like) the escaped dollar signs. Thanks for testing this for me, BlueBlazerRegular and BrowserUk. :)
