( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It appears from the problem description that the keys are all three characters, but just as a heads-up, you might want to add a reverse to that:

my $match = '('.join('|', reverse sort keys %replace).')';

The reverse ensures that the longest match is found even if some pattern is a prefix of another (which, in my experience, is generally the desired outcome). e.g.:

#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; my %replace = qw/pre 1 prefix 2/; my $norev = '('.join('|', sort keys %replace).')'; my $withrev = '('.join('|', reverse sort keys %replace).')'; while (<DATA>) { chomp; print "Line: $_"; print "norev <$1>" if /$norev/; print "w/rev <$1>" if /$withrev/; } __END__ This line contains prefix (which also matches 'pre')

Should print:

Line: This line contains prefix (which also matches 'pre') norev <pre> w/rev <prefix>

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.
