made this clearer above:
here's how you can install Perl modules:
*You can enter the Perl shell to install the modules you want.
*perl -MCPAN -e shell.
(follow the prompts, answer with the defaults. it takes a few minutes.)
*to install the module type. install module name. Example:
*make the shell significantly more user friendly type.
also, there is some issue with the way code gets translated on this board, even using the code tag. Here's a picture of the tested perl line that works.
and here are ideas for more
should have thought of this before: txt file with with working command. After you've configured your system. you can cut and paste this in a text editor and modify the search string and output file.
In the string example, I'm looking to make a document from the dramatica theory book, every sentence that contains the word 'handoff.'
perl sentence parser.txt.pdf (164 Bytes)
(as usual, get rid of the .pdf extension, it's only there so that the board would accept my upload. then you'll have a plain text file with the example string in it.
(umm except it should be hand-off in the search string, not handoff, which won't find anything. Dramatica book always inserts the dash between the two words).
REMEMBER you have to close your terminal window and open a new one to get the bash_profile to export the perl5 library path.
