( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Can you please explain a) and b) more detailed please? i tried out yous answer of a) which is
$count = @count = $data =~ m/and/g; and it works ok
also this works as well
$count = () = $data =~ m/and/g;
The problem is that i don't seem to understand why they are working!!! can u please expalin a liitle bit more? as far as for b) is this
$_ = 'foo and bar and baz went to the sea.'; @pairs = /(and)(?=\W*(\w+))/g; print join "#", @pairs;
the same as this?
$data = 'foo and bar and baz went to the sea.'; @pairs = $data =~ /(and)(?=\W*(\w+))/g; print "@pairs";
i dont understand this line of yours!
@pairs = /(and)(?=\W*(\w+))/g;
do you mean this?
@pairs = $data =~ /(and)(?=\W*(\w+))/g;
is $data implied on this? and what about the w the * and the +?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
