I agree that you are probably better off using HTML::Entities
The code you have should work for what you are trying to do.
The following snippet works as expected on your test line.
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w use strict; my $line = q{<br>&lt;/pre&gt;<br>&lt;img src= +/analog_sc/bp/_lessons_learned/2788_1.jpg&gt;<br>&lt;br&gt;<br>&lt;im +g}; print qq{LINE:[$line]\n}; tagremover( $line ); print qq{LINE:[$line]\n}; sub tagremover { $_[0] =~ s/&lt;/</g; $_[0] =~ s/&gt;/>/g; }
LINE:[<br>&lt;/pre&gt;<br>&lt;img src= +_sc/bp/_lessons_learned/2788_1.jpg&gt;<br>&lt;br&gt;<br>&lt;img] LINE:[<br></pre><br><img src= +essons_learned/2788_1.jpg><br><br><br><img]
What are you getting in your $description var after the replacement? DOes your data have Newlines in it?

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.
