( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Two points to remember:
  • 1. I shouldn't trust so easily in what others say.
  • 2. I should frequently practice with my monitor some oneliners with the examples that I learn...
Why? This is what I have just tryed...

perl -e"$old='abc';$old = tr/a/z/g;print \"$old \n\";" Bareword found where operator expected at -e line 1, near "tr/a/z/g" syntax error at -e line 1, near "tr/a/z/g" Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.

There is no tr///g since every replacement is done on all the characters. So the /g would always be unnecesary. Just try it!

.{\('v')/}   C H E E R   U P !

Wherever I lay my KNOPPIX disk, a new FREE LINUX nation could be established.
