comment Is it a good idea to supplement shell script with perl purely for use of regex?
the -n was what I was looking for, as it makes this work like grep :) the use of $ARGV[0] was so that this could be called from within a script in a concise way (avoiding the extra '"$var'" escapes). It seems the -n flag will break ARGV from within a pipe so escapes will have to do!
