in thread Regexp string concat

This is really neat++.

As the target is genome work which usually involves large volumes of big strings, using split '[a-z]+', string; to avoid the capture brackets will save a little time.

sub delirium{ my( $string, $qRef ) = @_; $string =~ tr[A-Z][a-z]; $string =~ s/$_/uc $_/ieg for @$qRef; return reduce{ length $a > length $b ? $a : $b } split '[a-z]+',; }

    An optimisation I've thought of for this, even though the thread is long dead, is to lc the original string, and have all the strings to match as upper case, then all you need do is: $string =~ s/$_/$_/i for @$qRef; I'm sure the regex is considerably faster for having taken the executable bit out of it.
