I did not ask you to define the hash/collection. I wanted you to show us how does the hashLookup() function look like. If you want a "complete" example so let's define a function that receives a template and a hash containing the values to insert into the template and returns the text with the values:

sub fillTemplate { my ($text, $hash) = @_; $text =~ s/%(\w)%/$hash->{$1}/g; return $text; }

How complex and twisted is the code in C#? Especialy considering the fact that the second parameter for Regex.Replace() is a delegate and that C# doesn't support unnames functions and closures? You have to define the hashLookup() as a fullblown method and you have to find a way to pass it the collection somewhere behind the scenes.

Either it can be a static method and then you'll have a static field in the class that'll hold the reference to the collection. Or you can create a brand new class that'll contain just the hashLookup() method and the reference to the collection. Or do I miss anything?

This is not the difference between Pascals begin-end and C's {}, there I would agree it's just an unimportant matter of verbosity. This is something so awkward, lengthy and unmaintainable that noone can be expected to use regexps. Except maybe for validations.

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.
