One more way.
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my %huge_trans = ( zero => 0, one => 1, ones => 11, two => 2, three => 3, # ... million => 1_000_000, ); my $rx_word = qr/\b\w+\b/i; print <> =~ s!($rx_word)! $huge_trans{lc $1} // $1 !ger;
Imagine you have huge dictionary for translation. Then this way should work faster.
Previously suggested way with alternations should also work fast, because Trie-optimization should kick-in.

Upd. BTW, it is not about "combining regex'es", it's only a use of a hash. All words, i.e. hash keys, must be simple words, not regexes.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
