in reply to Regex matching

This should work according to your example:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $string = "UFOFH 33603 01231 /0000 0024/ 1024/ 2025/ 3027/ 4030/ 50 +25/ 6028/ 7060/ 8081/ 9098/ 0110/ 1107/ 2106/ 3102/ 4080/ 5065/ 6057/ +"; if ( $string =~ m#UFOFH ([\d/]{5}\s?){4,27}# ) { print "$string\n"; }

Update: I updated the regexp to be a little prettier. Need more coffee...

[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
