in reply to Making multiple replaces through Regex

Try like this,

my ($colno) = $_ =~ /<csp c="(\d+)">/; my $csp; for my $i (1..$colno) { $csp = $csp."<colspec colnum=\"$i\" colname=\"col$i\"\/>\n"; } $_=~s/<csp c=\"$colno\">/$csp/g; print "$_";

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
