[ale] Perl and $_ ?



...what Mark said, $_ is a default variable, here are a few one liner
examples that I thought may help (just happended to have a Perl book
out)... as you can probably figure out; you can, in most cases,
explicitly reference the $_ variable...

while( <FILEHANDLER> ) = while( $_ = <FILEHANDLER> )
chomp; = chomp $_;
print "ok" if /$pat/; = print "ok" if $_ =~/$pat/;
s/$pat/$repl/; = $_ =~ s/$pat/$repl/; 
tr/ \t/\n/; = $_ =~ tr/ \t/\n/; 
print; = print $_;
split /$sep/; = split /$sep/, $_;
foreach (@list) = foreach $_ (@list)

hope this helps, 
Adam
