in thread Splitting a String into n-character parts, without using a regex

Goodmorning,

No, It isn't homework ... (However, when I start asking
Java-related questions here, you could suspect me of doing
so ;-)
I was trying to make an obfuscation. And I really wanted it
to be just 1 line, using the while loop in it, would cause
problems ... because I wanted to feed the @row to a map.
Something like:

my @newrow=map hex, while('aabbccdd'=~/\w{2}/g);
(That is want I wanted but, which apparently was not possible. while
just doesn't return a row) However, using a regex apparently was a good
option. Only for one reason or the other, the first time I
tried using the @row='aabbccddeefforwhatever'=~/\w{2}/g, it
didn't work. So I must have done something wrong. That's more
or less the reason I thought it couldn't be done using a regex
... which ofcourse was pretty silly and ignorant of me ;-)

Btw. Everybody thanks for their help !!! (I almost finished
the obfuscation) and next time I'll try longer before bothering
you ;-)

    See, that would have helped me tremendously, and perhaps many of the other posters. "I'm trying to make it an obfuscation". Please use that phrase in the future if that's your goal... I'm sure many of us can come up with pulling out solutions. In fact some of us here spend far too much time doing that. {grin}

    Otherwise, I'm just left with "why the odd goal", and I'm very goal directed so I have to understand the context of each one. I probably wouldn't survive long in a corporate world where things get done just because the boss says so. {grin}

    Thanks for the clarification.
