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

Though it is not the infallible oracle I once thought it was, I still make frequent use of

% perl -MO=Deparse,-p -e '<Perl code>'
...to figure out how perl is parsing something, or maybe to get a grip on some obfu. E.g. if you wonder what this one-liner does
-nle '}{print$.' foobar.txt
feed it to -MO=Deparse,-p (make sure to retain any other command line switches, like -nl here):
% perl -MO=Deparse,-p -nle '}{print$.' BEGIN { $/ = "\n"; $\ = "\n"; } LINE: while (defined(($_ = <ARGV>))) { chomp($_); } { print($.); } -e syntax OK
Note that the -p in this one-liner is part not perl's command line switch, but rather an argument to B::Deparse.

Less commonly , I use other backends, such as B::Terse and B::Concise, instead of B::Deparse. See also O and B.

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