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

ouch! you just hit on one of my pet peeves... bad spelling.

It's "occurrence", not "occurance". Your code may be the greatest thing in the world since sliced bread, but if routine names contain spelling mistakes people are going to believe that the code contains other shoddinesses, thus you wind up needlessly damaging your reputation.

Worse, client programmers using your code are going to stumble and trip, because they're going to try and call count_occurrences and fail miserably.

    [Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
    [Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
    [choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
    [Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
    [choroba]: grep is a filter, it selects elements from a list based on a boolean condition
    [moritz]: you need to read the file in one go to do a multiline regex match
    [erix]: ha ha, I like the Vigilante
    [Lady_Aleena]: Forget it. I'm getting angry with it.
    [Lady_Aleena]: I'll just have to search for the files using the subs and open them up.
