Yeah I ended up with .bak.bak.bak files :} I used

perl -i.bak -pe 's:<SPAN[^>]*>//g' *

So yeah close enough. :} Thanks to you guys once again.

That's something that steered me away from perl. Modules for days. I'm
simply trying to install Apache::ASP on my workstation, to test a theory,
and I can't seem to find all the modules I need. Net::FTP isn't installed
so it's trying to use lynx -source to install it but it's trying to login
to a server in Tokyo (using ftp://ftp.cpan.org) that keeps timing out. I
was using -MCPAN -eshell then install whatever::mod.

Know any tricks? I'm using perl 5.6.0 stock KRUD7 install.
