in reply to String manipulation

Another way, borrowing Athanasius' alternation:

use warnings; use strict; while (<DATA>) { s/(\d+)(th|st|nd|rd)/$1/; print; } __DATA__ December 14th 2012 December 21st 2012 December 22nd 2012

    Following will solve December 23rd 2012 to December 23 2012. It will work for all 1st, 2nd and 3rd to 1, 2, 3 respectively.
    use warnings; use strict; while (<DATA>) { s/(\d+)([a-z]{2})/$1/; print; } __DATA__ December 14th 2012 December 21st 2012 December 22nd 2012 December 23rd 2012
