in reply to Concatenating regexs?

It's hard to just "group" together regexes into one regex, unless you make a "dispatch table".
s/([b-zA-Z]):/\1/g; s/[aV] /A /g; s/a: /A: /g; s/2:/2 %/g; s/9|3:/&/g; s/([aeO])I/\1j/g; tr/QRC@6{/Orx**E/; my %trans; $trans{"$_:"} = $_ for 'b' .. 'z', 'A' .. 'Z'; $trans{"$_ "} = "A " for 'a', 'V'; $trans{"a: "} = "A: "; $trans{"2:"} = "2 %"; $trans{$_} = "&" for 9, '3:'; $trans{"${_}I"} = "${_}j" for 'a', 'e', 'O'; my $regex = join '|', map quotemeta($_), keys %trans; ### WARNING -- this does not allow for nested ### translations (like (A => 'BC', B => 'D') on ### the string "A" will yield "BC", not "DC") $string =~ s/($regex)/$trans{$1}/g; $string =~ tr/QRC@6{/Orx**E/;
