in reply to Need to change directory string.

Here's one way using s///:

use warnings; use strict; my $dir_str = "test/home/players/demo//thumbs/super.jpg"; $dir_str =~ s{//+}{/}g; print "$dir_str\n"; __END__ test/home/players/demo/thumbs/super.jpg

UPDATE: fixed typo. Thanks Athanasius

    Well, this produces .../demothumbs/..., but the OP states that he wants .../demo/thumbs/.... So a small amendment is needed:

    2:29 >perl -wE "$d = 'test/home/players/demo//thumbs/super.jpg'; $d = +~ s[/{2,}][/]g; say $d;" test/home/players/demo/thumbs/super.jpg 2:34 >

    Hope that helps,
