Picking up with the theme you were following, I got this to work. I haven't thought alot about corner cases, performance or reusability, so Grandfather's and tachyon-II's solutions are probably better.

update: apparently I'm just confused on this matter && added comment on second s/// with no effect: I didn't like doing the substitution twice just to get the end-of-line anchor to work. Perhaps some wiser monks can explain that to me. update: That was before I added chomp, so never mind . . .

#/usr/bin/perl -W $\="\n"; use strict; use warnings; while (<DATA>) { chomp; print $_; s/\/(?:[^\@:,\s+]*\/)(.*?)[\@:,\s+]*/\/new\/path\/$1/g; #s/\/(?:[^\@:,\s+]*\/)(.*?)[\@:,\s+]*$/\/new\/path\/$1/g; print $_; print ''; } # produces: # C:\chas_sandbox> # 683879resp.pl # file /user/name/some/path/to/filename@@ dumped: replaced /user/name/ +blah/blah/filename # file /new/path/filename@@ dumped: replaced /new/path/filename # # @@@@user/some/file/filename.sdc: dumped # @@@@user/new/path/filename.sdc: dumped __DATA__ file /user/name/some/path/to/filename@@ dumped: replaced /user/name/bl +ah/blah/filename @@@@user/some/file/filename.sdc: dumped


#my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:
use strict;
use warnings;
I humbly seek wisdom.
