I noticed the problem when trying out some one liners: perl -pe 'tr/A-Z/a-z/' testfile This should printout testfile in lowercase, however the case does not change. my win32 perl: C:\>perl -v This is perl, v5.10.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread Copyright 1987-2007, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source kit.

Close this ticket, It works correctly if you use double quotes: perl -pe "tr/A-Z/a-z/" file Thank you for your time. Leonard Bugs in Perl-Dist-Strawberry via RT wrote: Show quoted text

It's a shell quoting issue. You can't use single quotes with the Windows command line. Try this: Show quoted text
> perl -pe "tr/A-Z/a-z/" testfile
Works for me. It does make one-liners annoying. I wind up using qq() a lot. David

Funny though singlequotes workes fine for cygwins perl distribution, even if its started from the windows shell: <windows shell snip start> C:\cygwin\bin>perl -e 'print "Hello world"' Hello world C:\cygwin\bin>perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for i686-cygwin-thread-multi-64int (with 13 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) <windows shell snip stop> And if I try with Strawberry: <windows shell snip start> C:\strawberry\perl>perl -e 'print "Hello world"' Can't find string terminator "'" anywhere before EOF at -e line 1. C:\strawberry\perl>perl -v This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread <windows shell snip start> Regards Magnus Mikkelsen
