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

Not as pretty, but seems to do the same thing?

In this case, my intention was to use the sorting of the output to illustrate in an immediately easy-to-see manner, the relationship between

sitelib, sitelibexp and installsitelib
, and then the comparison to the same series for sitearch, for example.

In this case the "prettiness" is part of the point, and otherwise of course TMTOWTDI. But note that your alternative certainly falls lower on the portability scale since you are relying on the which tool, which is *nix-centric, and won't be present on many MS Windows boxes, as is also true of the grep command. Although I didn't write this tool on M$ Windows, it's certainly my intention that Win32-Perl users can use it as well as *nix-perl users.

Thanks for your feedback!

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.
