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

[Corion]: Hi choroba! I'm somewhat fond of this picture - I think it is Breaking Bad-style even though I haven't watched the series at all ;)
[Corion]: Hmmm - and now that I look at it, the gallery I'm using doesn't produce non-Javascript compatible links in the sense that hotlinking to an image will only work for Javascript enabled...
