Perl one liners...

Here are ten one liners in perl, illustrating the kinds of task one would use a script for under linux. All the scripts take some kind of argument after the final ' quote that signals the end of the program.

1. perl -p -i -e 's/this/that/g' filename

Search and replace the string 'this' with the string 'that' in the file filename. You can also say * or *.html or any valid wildcard expression instead of filename. The s/// command uses regular expressions. If you want to alter the 'this' and 'that', it's best to avoid .*?[ ]{}$^ and other odd characters which act as metacharacters in regular expressions. Or better still look at the perlre documentation page. You can do this by saying perldoc perlre. Perl has extensive online documentation, try perldoc perltoc for a list.
