in reply to replace a character based on rule file

G'day lakssreedhar,

You haven't actually asked a question - please take a look at: How do I post a question effectively?

For the scenario you describe, I'd be looking at a positive look-behind assertion - see perlre - Extended Patterns for details.

Here's an example:

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' my @words = qw{door name dad naming}; for (@words) { s{(?<=na)m}{+d}; say; } ' door na+de dad na+ding

-- Ken

[Corion]: Oh, poor Trump can't get a break. Even the Vatican only sends the second in command to greet him...
[shmem]: Discipulus: readdir has the same semantics as readline (a.k.a <>). Have another coffee ☕ ;-)
[Discipulus]: ah! just with my old system perl (5.8.8) was needed
[Corion]: Has anybody toyed around with Mastodon? There is a Perl module for it, but I'm not sure that it's a yak worth chasing
[Corion]: On the upside, maybe running that for my family would be interesting, or at least for myself
[Corion]: I'm not fond of using a server hosted by other people, even if they claim to be GNU ;)
[Discipulus]: gee a social network with the family.. is this a dread? ;=)
