My most important one liner: if I set up some coffee and continue working, I often forget to fetch it, and it gets cold... so:

perl -le 'sleep(300); print qq~\a~ x 10'

reminds me that I must not forget to fetch the fresh coffee; this is the oneliner I use most often

other cases, for filtering or replacing data in files, e.g. printing objects in LDIF files which have the auxiliary object class dxmADsUser:

perl -e 'BEGIN { $/="\n\n" }' -ne 'print if /^objectClass: dxmADsUser/si' file1 > file2

or replacing domain components on-the-fly:

perl -i.bak -pe 's/dc=domain1,dc=tld$/dc=domain2,dc=tld/' file

or counting something, e.g. how often each attribute is existing in an ldif file:

perl -MData::Dumper -ane '$count_of{$F[0]}++' -e 'END { print Dumper(\%count_of) }' file

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."

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.
