in reply to How to Remove Commas ?

allendevans:

I've not found a "search and replace" command to replace the commas with "nothing", allowing direct numeric manipulation of the scalar variables.

Really?

$ cat t.pl #/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use feature ':5.10'; my $t = "1,234,567.89"; $t =~ s/,//g; say $t; $ perl t.pl 1234567.89
