in reply to string functions

The following uses regexes and eval:

use strict; use warnings; my @p = (1.5, 2.5, 3.5 ); my @m = (0.5, 0.55, 0.60); my $a="2A2B2C"; sub calc { my $i = shift; my $j = ord(shift)-65; my $r = $p[$j]; $r *= $p[$j] for (0..$i-2); return $r * $m[$j]; } $a=~ s/([0-9]+)([A-Z])/(calc($1,"$2"))/g; $a=~ s/\)\(/)*(/g; eval "\$a = $a;"; print $a; #28.423828125

    your solution works for 2A2B2C. But for 4AC, ABC,BC it directly prints the string. your solutions.
      Is this what you want? Sorry, but your speccs are not very clear ...
      2A2B2C = 28.423828125 4AC = 5.315625 ABC = 2.165625 BC = 2.8875

      This was produces by the following code (adapted from holiy's solution):

      use strict; use warnings; my @p = (1.5, 2.5, 3.5 ); my @m = (0.5, 0.55, 0.60); sub calc { my $i = shift || 1; my $idx = ord(shift)-65; return $m[$idx] * ($p[$idx]**$i); } for my $str (qw/2A2B2C 4AC ABC BC/) { my $res = 1; while ($str =~ /(\d)?([A-Z])/g) { $res *= calc($1, $2); } print "$str = $res\n"; }
