My intent, for those who actually want to run the script, was for you to download the files, then run the provided perl one-liner to strip the numbers out. For example, you could download, then run this:

perl -p -i.orig -e 's/^=\s+\d+\s+= //'

And you'll have a working copy of (no line numbers) and a backup called (line numbers included) that you can use to follow along with the tutorial.

I'm guessing your editor numbers each file starting at line 1. This makes perfect sense, but if I numbered the listings that way it would get confusing because of the overlap (i.e., 7 listings => 7 line number 1's, etc.). I concatenated all the files together, then ran a script to prepend the numbers, so that each line would have a unique identifier.

But I'm open to suggestions - if there's a better way to do it, I'm willing to give it a try. I'll wait a few days and see what other people suggest/recommend.

Thanks for the feedback.

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.
