these will work even if it is a double digit in $var (ie: 1 and 10 will both succeed for the first example) but if you only want one digit in range maybe something like:
print $& if $var =~ /^[1-3]$/;
or ... better yet ... if you are going to be doing this alot and with strings as well as digits ...
sub look_into { my $archetype= shift; eval 'sub { $_[0] =~ /$archetype/o; }' } my $is_text_am_too_red = look_into q/\b(am|too|red)\b/; my $single_digit_in_range = look_into q/^[1-5]$/; my $double_digit_in_set = look_into q/^[5-7][49]$/; # etc. if($is_text_am_too_red ->($_)){ print "get some sleep!" } if($single_digit_in_range ->($_)){ print "single digit in range!" } if($double_digit_in_set ->($_)){ print "double digit in set!" } #etc.

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.
