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

My most important one liner: if I set up some coffee and continue working, I often forget to fetch it, and it gets cold... so:

perl -le 'sleep(300); print qq~\a~ x 10'

reminds me that I must not forget to fetch the fresh coffee; this is the oneliner I use most often

other cases, for filtering or replacing data in files, e.g. printing objects in LDIF files which have the auxiliary object class dxmADsUser:

perl -e 'BEGIN { $/="\n\n" }' -ne 'print if /^objectClass: dxmADsUser/si' file1 > file2

or replacing domain components on-the-fly:

perl -i.bak -pe 's/dc=domain1,dc=tld$/dc=domain2,dc=tld/' file

or counting something, e.g. how often each attribute is existing in an ldif file:

perl -MData::Dumper -ane '$count_of{$F[0]}++' -e 'END { print Dumper(\%count_of) }' file

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
