I appreciate the suggestions, but I'll respectfully decline. My '-c' and '-d' options work very differently from the '-k' and '-t' options in unix 'sort' (and I don't really want to implement the 'sort' style for these options), so I'd rather not confuse people by suggesting that they're the same thing. (Plus I have a few other utils for flat-table text data that use '-c' and/or '-d' the same way this script does.)

BTW, I checked out the App:: name space at the CPAN, and didn't find a lot of command line utils there. If I use the search term command line utility, I see more things that this script might group with, but they don't seem to be in a specific name space.

Oh well, having this up at PerlMonks (with a link on my home node) is good enough for me.

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.
