in reply to extracting data from string

but a single statement has to do it

Why? You seem to optimize for a really silly thing. The code should be understandable and robust. See also: The path to mastery.

Anyway, you can do this:

for ("!defined(FLOAT_CODE)", "defined(FIXED_CODE)") { /^(!?)defined\((\w+)\)/ and print "$1$2\n"; }

[Discipulus]: good night folks
[marioroy]: I will make a mp3info script that takes the -p "%S\n" args and test qx. I'm on the road, so will come back.
[marioroy]: All because File::Find is not fun for LA.
[marioroy]: good night Discipulus.
