i think nick's code has a bug or extra opts. the 015 needs to follow the
-l option as abigail does with 12. in his it follows the -p which takes
no argument. maybe perl will use 015 for the record separator arg and
override the -0777 (which slurps the whole file in). i don't see how
slurping and also setting -l and -015 would work. of course i didn't run
it as that would take the fun out of analyzing it. :)
