regular expression function: grep, split, substr OR NO need?
Welcome to the Monastery!
When you are asking questions here, may I politely recommend that you keep in mind at least these three points:
- Don’t use big font-sizes. Don’t SHOUT. You already have our attention, however briefly. Also, don’t make your post look like a man page.
- Don’t waste everyone’s time (including yours) with “teach me Perl, please,” or “don’t make me look for myself” questions. PM is not a school. Instead, do a reasonable amount of self-study of your particular requirement and then frame a pointed, answerable question.
- TMTOWTDI™ == There’s More Than One Way To Do It. In Perl circles, that is a Mantra. We have no idea what is, for you in your case, the best way or if there is “no need,” and no one can really answer that question for you anyway but you. We can advise you, if given a specific question with just-enough supporting information to allow us to frame a meaningful answer.
