#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use feature 'say'; sub replace { my ($string, $from, $to, $count) = @_; my $pos = '0E0'; # plain 0 means the string begins with $from while ($count-- and $pos >= 0) { $pos = index $string, $from, $pos eq '0E0' ? $pos : $pos + 1; } substr $string, $pos, 1, $to if $pos > 0; return $string; } say replace($_, ',' => '|', 2) for qw( a,b,c,d pq,rs,tu,vw ,s,t,a,r,t ,,yuck 1,2 );
