in thread word with some number in between

hey i did this , but there is some issue with the command , the first $ is not a part of regex as per perl . with this regex what i tried doing is that some $ before num and some $ after it . please tell what is the mistake

if ($array_A[$i] =~ /^$+[0-9]+$/)

    The /^$+ part makes no sense. If you you just want to test for the presence of digits then a simple /[0-9]/ will work splendidly.

      Continuing hippo's advice, you should continue to the grep part next.

      Cheers, Sören

      (hooked on the Perl Programming language)

      but since /0-9/ can be anywhere in the word , not necessarily in beginning or end

        Precisely. eg.

        $ perl -e 'print "Matched.\n" if "foo8baz" =~ /[0-9]/;' Matched. $ perl -e 'print "Matched.\n" if "foobaz" =~ /[0-9]/;'

    " ... what i tried doing is that some $ before num and some $ after it "

    Do you, by any chance, mean you tried to deal with data that included a "$" sign... such as:  abc12$ or  $98abc or  $$zyx5abc or something similar?

    If so, you'll have to escape the "$" sign (with a preceding backslash, "\") in your regex.

    perl -E "my $s='$abc123'; if ($s =~ /\$/ ) { say 'Found a dollar-sign';}

    which outputs:

    Found a dollar-sign

    Otherwise, (slightly oversimplified), the regex engine uses the "$" sign is only to mark an EOL.

    Updated by quoting a possibly mis-understood part of OP's latest question.


    If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!
