in thread Store regular expressions in a file.

This also works:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $data = "duck"; while(<DATA>) { chomp; my( $find, $replace ) = split ' ', $_, 2; if( $data =~ s[\Q$find][$replace]e ) { print "$data\n"; } } __DATA__ duck luck

"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
