in thread Need advice in for perl use as awk replacement
I would not try to use perl like awk.
Well, I do this quite frequently, but then (a) I am very fluent in Perl, and (b) I can't hardly write a line of awk without consulting the fm. (I used to be fluent in awk, but those parts of my brain have been taken over by Perl, like wasp maggots in a caterpillar.)
