If you're going for the minimum in terseness; you can always use a temporary file:

./print_list >/temp/temp.txt; perl temp.txt file.txt; rm temp.txt would read from the first file, then use the contents to substitute in the second file:

use strict; use warnings; open(my $file1, '<', $ARGV[0]) or die "Can't open $ARGV[0]: $!\n"; my @substitutions = <$file1>; close($file1); chomp(@substitutions); open(my $file2, '<', $ARGV[1]) or die "Can't open $ARGV[1]: $!\n"; while(my $line = <$file2>) { for my $replace (@substitutions) { next unless $replace; # skip blanks $line =~ s/\Q$replace\E/foo/g; } print $line; } close($file2);

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.
