in reply to Returning regexp pattern that was used to match

This is easy enough - just test each portion individually. When it matches then you know that the current pattern is the one that matched.

sub do_this { my $self = shift; my %actions = %{shift()}; for my $rx ( keys %actions ) { if ( $self->{'find'} =~ $rx ) { print "Found it with '$rx'\n"; last; } } }

[Corion]: 1nickt: I bought a 2015 XPS 13, which is a very nice and shiney (and somewhat overpriced) machine, but I think it's still better priced than an Apple machine. Now it just has to hold up 10 years like the old one did ;)
