( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
If the file you want to examine does not fit in memory, you will have to remember two lines at a time.
while (<>) { print unless ($_ eq "\n") && ($last ne "\n") && ($secondlast ne "\n" +); $secondlast = $last; $last = $_; }
update: This doesn't quite work. We'll have to deter deciding whether or not we will print the current line until we have examined the next line.
while (<>) { $last = $this; $this = $next; $next = $_; print $this unless ($last ne "\n") && ($this eq "\n") && ($next ne " +\n"); } print $next unless ($next eq "\n") && ($this ne "\n"); #last line is s +pecial

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.
