Maybe a regex:

$string =~ s/^\d{12}/'*' x 12/e; # ************5678

    If the OP wanted to hardcode the length, he could have done
    substr($string,0,-4,'*'x12);

    Much clearer.

[choroba]: Morning!
[Corion]: Hi choroba, Discipulus!
[Corion]: Yesterday I've been mulling over how to best generate HTTP requests from permutations of values but I haven't found a nice API for passing in the "template" of the HTTP request yet. I guess I'll have to do a SoPW for that
[Corion]: The API itself will basically be my $iter = generate_http_requ ests(method => 'GET', url => '/settings/:name', headers => ???, get_params => ['foo','bar']), but I'm not sure how to parametrize values in the headers and how to specify lists of ...
[choroba]: On the other hand, lots of options to receive the requests :-)
[Corion]: ... values to be used. For example, I think for headers, one would want to have various kinds of Content-Encoding headers, but for the get_parameters one would have various kinds of Bobby Tables
[choroba]: What about [metadoc:// Algorithm::Loops]?
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, but handing off the request to Dancer,Plack, Mojolicious,LWP is easy once I have the data filled into some structure ;))
[choroba]: Algorithm::Loops
[Corion]: choroba: I'm using that to generate the permutations, but I don't know how the user can pass the intended values to my function in a sane way
