if I grok Perl one-liners, I don't need shell scripting nearly as much

Indeed, but with oneliners, you still need to know the shell fairly well. I'm not implying you don't, but I'm just trying to make the point. There are many shell gotchas involved when writing oneliners. Most common are quoting and glob expansion (or expansion in general) woes. Also, it's often more natural to use a perl oneliner as part of the pipeline, rather than the entire thing. This requires knowing the shells you're working with. There's really no [reasonably convenient] way of avoiding it. :-)

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.
