( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Note that if your filename contains single or double quotes, you'll strip them and subsequently Perl won't find the file under the mangled name. A somewhat saner approach might be to find out how exactly filenames arrive in your program when dragged into it.

As an example, on Windows, filenames dropped into the console window get surrounded by double quotes. So, on Windows it would make sense to strip one leading and the trailing double quote. Windows allows single quotes in filenames, so stripping them out is ill-advised.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
