My one line file is only 238566 bytes in size. See OP for details.

Yes, and one can use IPC::Run for that as I noted -

For a process to accept STDIN and can get its STDOUT, the answer
is IPC::Open2, because it is in the standard distribution and IPC::Run is
not (Just learnt it myself when investigating the solution). Anyway, here
is my IPC::Open2 version:

perl -MFileHandle -MIPC::Open2 -n000e 'BEGIN { sub process { $pid =
open2(*Reader, *Writer, "cat | wc -c"); print Writer $_[0]; waitpid( $pid,
0 ); $got = <Reader>; }; }; s,(?<=">)(.*?)(?=</HttpBody>),process $1,eg;

And it just stops there forever, with or without the waitpid.

The problem is the big s///g loop. Standalone IPC::Open2 read/write tested

Thanks for the input.
