( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Wishful thinking must die...

my $sentence="to baah or not to chomp, that's the question"; my $garbage = 0; $garbage++ while ($sentence =~ /[,'\s]/g); @chars = split //, $sentence; print "You can create ", (scalar(@chars) - $garbage)/4.0," groups of f +our characters here\n";

A little twisted but it works... note that you don't lose any info here in your sentence

Updated: printing the groups

@chars = grep {!/(,|'|\s)/} @chars; my $n = 0; while ($n < $#chars){ print $chars[$n],$chars[$n+1],$chars[$n+2],$chars[$n+3],"\n"; $n = $n+4}
