I was trying to use the "/r" flag in a REGEX Search and Replace and I keep getting the error:
"Bareword found where operator expected at ./test.pl line 11, near "s/Matt/Matthew/r" "
$str = "Hello World I'm Matt";
$str2 = $str =~ s/Matt/Matthew/r;
print " str = $str\n";
print "str2 = $str2\n";
The server it's running on has Perl Version 5.8.8.
Was the Non-Destructive Flag "/r" not implemented in this version of Perl? If so, is it possible to get it without upgrading all of Perl..?
Thanks in Advance,
