( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to find a regex that will...

You don't need no steenkin' regex:

open my $fh, '<', 'whatever'; # or whatever my %hash = ( a => 0, e => 1, i => 2, o => 3, u => 4 ); while ( <$fh> ) { chomp; my $copy = $_; my @array; while ( my $char = lc chop $copy ) { no warnings 'uninitialized'; $array[ $hash{ $char } ] = 1; } say if ( grep $_, @array ) == 5; }

Pretty fast, too, you'll find...

Update: Hmm, if you take out the line no warnings 'uninitialized'; (and therefore remove use warnings or whatever from the start of the code), it seems to run nearly 20% faster still...

Comments welcome.

Update 2: Oops, just realised that my code doesn't work! Change the contents of the inner while loop to:

$array[ $hash{ $char } ] = 1 if defined $hash{ $char };

Which is what I had originally, before playing with no warnings 'uninitialized';. And then I didn't test properly.

Mea culpa.

    [LanX]: It seems that PHP's official docs use "closure" and "anonymous function" interchangeably, even though their closures don't capture surrounding state without using the 'use' language construct.
    LanX explains much cargo bla ...
    [Eily]: what? I thought PHP was known for its reliable and consistent behaviour and documentation!
    [LanX]: ... and a lot of pseudo Perl experts
    [Eily]: though honestly, I'm sure I have seen people use closure to mean anonysub for perl as well
    [stonecolddevin]: good morning friends
    [LanX]: yes, mainly pseudo Perl experts
