in reply to Split tags and words nicely

Hi bwgoudey,

I think you may be looking for this:
$a=q{<tag ref=1>Start<tag ref=2>and more</tag>and end</tag>}; @l=split qr{(</?tag[^>]*>)}, $a; print join "\n", @l;
The main trick is to use () inside the regex used in split to capture the delimiters.

    Along the same lines, here's something that is completely regex and no join or split is needed. Probably could be obfuscated even more :)
    $a = q{<tag ref=1>Start<tag ref=2>and more</tag>and end</tag>}; my @b; $a =~ s/(<\/?tag[^>]*>)(\w*)/push @b, ($1,$2)/eg; map {print $_,"\n"} @b;

    Prints the following:
    <tag ref=1> Start <tag ref=2> and </tag> and </tag>

    s;;5776?12321=10609$d=9409:12100$xx;;s;(\d*);push @_,$1;eg;map{print chr(sqrt($_))."\n"} @_;
      You have a slight glitch in that you are losing any text after the space, e.g. "and more" comes out as "and". Fix:

      $a =~ s/(<\/?tag[^>]*>)([\w ]*)/push @b, ($1,$2)/eg;

      Also it is probably a good idea to avoid $a and $b for variable names because of their special status with regard to sort.



        Doh! Nice catch. Good call with $a, $b.

        s;;5776?12321=10609$d=9409:12100$xx;;s;(\d*);push @_,$1;eg;map{print chr(sqrt($_))."\n"} @_;
