( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Or the semi-obfuscated version: as long as you just emptied out $/, why not use it? :)

{ local $/; $/ .= $_ while <STDIN>; }

P.S. In general, you want to make changes to global variables a temporary condition, as in merlyn's do loop above, and the more general form:

{ local $/; ## This is already undef, no need to set it ## Read in the file, etc... } ## $/ is now back where it was

    [Corion]: Eily: Sure, that's what I do, but some things you need to do on the Android device directly, like when navigating the bootloader :-)
    [Eily]: marto you just need a longer cable :P
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, but I'm somewhat wary of installing random USB drivers downloaded from mega.nz , Google Drive or whatever, so Linux wins there due to there being no conflicts and me just having to edit one text file in the worst case, to add the USB vendor
    [hippo]: Long USB cable FTW.
    [Corion]: Eily: I've thought of that, but I don't like running long cables through the appartment because sooner or later I'll trip over it, pulling at least one device off its stand :)
    [marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
    [Corion]: marto: Heh - it seems that they plan to keep the search.cpan.org links alive for a long time. But still, I plan on moving PM to use/generate the new links
    [Corion]: And I think it's better to generate links to the new world instead of keeping the older links alive by generating new versions of them ;)
    [marto]: yeah, I guess it's supposed to be a permanent redirect, but better to make the move where possible
