in reply to Parsing nested parentheses

This will not work if all tokens are not the same length, because of the reliance on index, which seems ok given the sample dataset provided. Also, its probably not the best approach, but I believe it works and I had fun producing it.

use strict; use warnings; my $val = 'X'; my $min_len_subgroup; sub chk { my $subgroup = shift; if(-1 != index($subgroup, $val)) { if (!defined $min_len_subgroup || length $subgroup < length $min_l +en_subgroup) { $min_len_subgroup = $subgroup; } } } our $re = qr{ ( \( (?: (?> [^()]+ ) | (??{ $re }) )* \) ) (?{ chk($1) }) }x; my @pats = ( "(1(2(X)))", "(1(2(X,a))) (3(X,e,f))", "(1(2(X,b,c))) (3(X,f))", "(1(2(X,a))) (X,b)", "(1(2(X,a))) (X,b) X", "(1(2(X,a))) (X,b) (X)", ); for my $pat (@pats) { undef $min_len_subgroup; if (() = ($pat =~ /$re/g)) { print "$min_len_subgroup\n"; } }

[Corion]: Hehe - $work is a place where we have lots of (money) accounts, and lots of journals where every transaction is recorded. But our HR system where the accounts of hours worked and vacation days taken are stored, there is no real account of who changed ...
[Corion]: ... that balance, and when. And it seems to me that they somehow really messed up the database since the start of the year and have been frantically adding and subtracting numbers from the totals, but without trace ;)
