Re: [rovf] Outputting from a terminal invocation
Your example worked fantastically and I was ecstatic, however, although this has worked in your example for some reason when I try:
sh -f -c "perl -lpe 's/L/l/g' test.txt > test_out.txt"
sh -f -c "perl -p -le 's/L/l/g' test.txt > test_out.txt"
I get nothing (although the perl lines work fine in the terminal directly). I'm guessing it has something to do with the need to add the "-p" in there but without that I get a blank output (in perl). I've also tried replacing the single quotes with double quotes but still nothing, not even a blank document where it's tried to make a file.
p.s. I also tried complete file paths /Users/username/text*.txt
