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

Aaron, that grep line looks promising (short and 'simple' - I like that!). I do not really understand it, but I want to, so I will review grep in perldocs and elsewhere and hopefully be able to decipher the line so I will be able to adapt it to my needs in the future. Thanks so much!

To everyone else who has commented, thank you too! The logic in the if statements in the original code is correct.

I am going to try the simpler and prettier code written by Athanasius. BTW - I know the row count is correct because I looked at it in a few ways and checked a number of lines at the beginning, middle and end of several cut files against the original and these were right on. I will update the Monastery after I try the new code.

One last note - I mentioned I was working through the "Camel" book; well actually its the "Llama" book... sorry Perlers.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
