Yes, you can do s/^\s+|\s+$//g but it is definaly not optimized. It is generally preferred to use the two regexes, since it is roughly 3 times faster:
use Benchmark; my $val = " Smart Way "; timethese(1000000, { regex1 => sub { my $tmp = $val; $tmp =~ s/^\s+|\s+$//g; }, regex2 => sub { my $tmp = $val; $tmp =~ s/^\s+//; $tmp =~ s/\s+$//; } });
Benchmark: timing 1000000 iterations of regex1, regex2... regex1: 9 wallclock secs ( 6.43 usr + 0.02 sys = 6.45 CPU) @ 155038.76/s (n=1000000) regex2: 2 wallclock secs ( 2.65 usr + 0.00 sys = 2.65 CPU) @ 377358.49/s (n=1000000)

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.
