in reply to Bug in script, regex help req extreme urgent

I need to debug this script. This is an urgent requirement

Type: use strict; very fast

--> Global symbol "$string" requires explicit package name at bugscri line 18. Execution of aborted due to compilation errors.

Ok, we got one!

Can't see the strings "newname" or "oldname" in your script. Can we have an example of the matching line?

(...few minutes later...)

Ok, i see... Try to be as clear as you can.

my $filename = $ARGV[0]; my $oldname = $ARVG[2]; my $newname = $ARGV[1];

oldname = 2, newname = 1... you want to change 2 by 1. Could I suggest to replace 1 by 2 instead and avoid unnecessary obfuscation?

my $string =~ s/^module.*?$oldname.*?([\\(;])/module $newname$1/sg;

Mmmh, I'm not very comfortable with the idea of to use ";" or "(" as last character of a filename...
