Any chance there's a CPAN module to do that? If not, you should definitely write it!

um... well, <confession> the tool I referred to there is one that I actually wrote in C (so long ago, it was before I learned Perl) </confession>. "It ain't broke", so I've had no need to rewrite it. I sincerely apologize if it was inappropriate to discuss it here.

Obviously a good Perl version to do the same thing would be a lot fewer lines of code than my C version, and most likely would not be significantly slower. But for the time being, I'm sorry that I must "leave it as an exercise for the reader..."

(Update: I'm happy to share the C code with anyone who might want to try it out -- you can download it here: -- again, please forgive me for straying off-topic to non-Perl tools, and accept it in the spirit of PerlMonks, as an opportunity to adapt and enhance it in Perl.)
