\K in perl not working
I have just started learning perl and was working on my one-liners tips and tricks.
Instead of using the below command :
perl -lape 's/(^From:).*/$1 Nelson Elhage <nelhage\@ksplice.com>/'
i tried using the \k command using the below command but it gave no results:
perl -lape 's/^From:\K.*/ Nelson Elhage <nelhage\@ksplice.com>/'
Is there some problem with the perl version on my unix box. Please find some of details of the platform i am using:
> uname -a
HP-UX hpxi017 B.11.23 U ia64 1433056900 unlimited-user license
> perl -v i
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for IA64.ARCHREV_0-thread-multi
(with 33 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)
Sorry if it is a very basic question
