"And thanks for the alias tip. I will have to park that one away for the time being because as useful as Perl one-liners are, I don't think I'm quite ready to use them that frequently."

I have aliases set up such that they're always available, regardless of frequency of usage. In ~/.bashrc, I have:

... if [ -f "${HOME}/.bash_aliases" ]; then . "${HOME}/.bash_aliases" fi ...

And ~/.bash_aliases has lines like this:

... alias vi='vim' alias view='vim -R' ... alias perle='perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -Mautodie=:all -MCarp::Always -E +' alias perlb='perl -MO=Deparse,-p -e' ... alias apache_up='/usr/sbin/apachectl start' alias apache_down='/usr/sbin/apachectl stop' ...

You may need to adjust to suit whatever shell you're using; however, the basic principle should be applicable to any UNIX-like system. I use this with Linux for $work; with Cygwin for personal, home use; and, up until a year or so ago, with macOS (formerly Mac OS X).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
