ActivePerl Flags

ActivePerl Flags Recently I had to setup Active Perl with Sublime Text 2 in Windows 8. After adding a new build system and setting up the path to perl.exe with the -w flag I wanted to figure out what other flags were available.

You can pass perl several flags:

bin/perl -w
bin/perl -p
bin/perl -d
bin/perl -i
bin/perl -t
bin/perl -pe
bin/perl -pi

Here are what the perl flags do:

-i: Modifies your input file in-place
-w: Activates some warnings
-d: Runs under the Perl debugger
-t: Treats certain "tainted" code as warnings
-p: Places a printing loop around your command so that it acts on each
    line of standard input.
-e: Allows you to provide the program as an argument rather
    than in a file.
