Hello TonyNY,

Fellow Monks have provided you with a solution to your problem. Just for fun you can use also the module File::Slurp.

Sample code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Slurp qw(read_file write_file); my $filename = 'in.txt'; my $data = read_file $filename, {binmode => ':utf8'}; $data =~ s/The action failed\./failed_build/g; write_file $filename, {binmode => ':utf8'}, $data; __END__ $ cat in.txt one two The action failed. three The action failed. twice The action failed. four $ cat in.txt one two failed_build three failed_build twice failed_build four

As fellow Monk choroba said File::Slurp is broken and wrong, instead you can use the File::Slurper.

Sample of code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Slurper qw(read_text write_text); my $filename = 'in.txt'; my $data = read_text($filename); $data =~ s/The action failed\./failed_build/g; write_text($filename, $data); __END__ $ cat in.txt one two The action failed. three The action failed. twice The action failed. four $ cat in.txt one two failed_build three failed_build twice failed_build four

Or mu personal favorite IO::All, sample of code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use IO::All -utf8; # Turn on utf8 for all io my $contents = io->file('in.txt')->slurp; $contents =~ s/The action failed\./failed_build/g; $contents > io('in.txt'); __END__ $ cat in.txt one two The action failed. three The action failed. twice The action failed. four $ cat in.txt one two failed_build three failed_build twice failed_build four

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.
