in reply to Pattern matching with \t

Not tested this but:
  • Used i to indicate case insensitivity.
  • AFAIK special chars don't need \ in character classes.
  • Used x to allow for new lines in regex to aid readability.
  • Used ? in .+ match to make it parsimonius.
  • Used \d instead of 0-9, it means the same thing.

$_[0] =~ m/([A-Z\d_/.,-]+) \s*\t* (.+?) \s*\t* ([\d.]+) \t* ([\d.]+)*/ix;
