Greetings tye.
Thanks for taking the time to respond.

s{(?<=[a-z])([0-9]{1,3})(?=[.])}{ sprintf "%04d", $1 }ge;
Looks brilliant in it's simplicity. But my head is still in sed(1) scripting mode. So I fear I am not yet following it. :(

I'm attempting to sort it out now. :)

Thanks again!

#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
use perl::always;
my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
print $perl_version;
