in reply to replace a character based on rule file

The reason the OP code doesn't work is that the @inp_word array contains elements of one character each, because it gets the output of split(//,$inp_word4); But then your logic depends on some element of @input_word containing "na", which can never happen.

If I understand your task description correctly, I think you just need a basic regex substitution:

while(<>) { s/(?<=na)m/+d/g; print; }
The (?<=na) part there is called a "positive look-back assertion" - check that out on perlre. It says that any "m" will be replaced by "+d" if it's preceded by "na".

[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
[LanX]: not much to translate anyway since Goscinny died
[Eily]: https://en. wikipedia.org/ wiki/List_of_Aster ix_characters some of the names were changed to include a new pun
[LanX]: sure some are even funnier now
[LanX]: some lost because they were not translated like Epidemais
[LanX]: some of the english names are funny too
