in reply to Pattern Finding

This little guy will do want you want.
The string can't have spaces, or you'll have to use a
different seperator rather than a space. If you wanted it
to be bullet proof, you would have to use arrays and do the
regexp compares on every element.

WARNING: If there is a pattern that is never repeated, this will go into an infinite loop

It is not commented, but short enough to be self explanitory (?)
use strict;
use Data::Dumper;

my $orig_str = 'helloworldhellohellohihellohiworld';

my @patterns = ();

my $str = $orig_str;

while (length($str)) {
    my $len = 1;
    my $token = substr($str, 0, $len);
    my $test_p = substr($str, $len);
    while ($test_p =~ /$token/) {
        $token = substr($str, 0, $len);
        $test_p = substr($str, $len);
    $token = substr($str, 0, $len - 1);
    push @patterns, $token;
    $token =~ s/ //g;
    $str =~ s/$token/ /g;
    $str =~ s/^ *//;

print Dumper(\@patterns);
