in reply to perl substitute

Some thoughts:

  • s/foore/barstring/ works on $_ in isolation, but you're not setting $_, even implicitly.
  • You set $doc but never subsequently refer to it.
  • You use IO::File but never subsequently refer to it.
  • You alternate between slashes and hashes for regexp delimiters for no apparent reason
  • Looks like your input XML is not valid XML
  • and finally, you both use an XML parser and then attempt to just regexp your way through the string. Pick one, not both.

    Well he needs another regex-delimiter an substitutions with </end> tags to avoid the slash.

      Sure, but that's no reason to alternate - just use hashes throughout. Inconsistency is the bug's friend. :)

      Thank you. This helps.
