Re: Get variables from if with regex

in reply to Get variables from if with regex

In your particular case, it is not so hard to combine the regexes into one:

while (<IFILE>) { if (my ($word, $time_stamp) = /[#!]\s+(\w+)\s+(\d+)./) { print "[ $word $time_stamp ]\n"; } }
Note that the binding operator =~ imposes a scalar context on its left operand, so matching an array does not do what you think.

    The suggestion by choroba seems to work, and is part of the solution, but I can't seem to get it working with more than one instance of it in the same if statement: Works:
    undef $/; $/="\n\n"; while(<IFILE>) { my @RESULT=(); my @LINES=split (/\n/, $_); if ((grep /objectClass:\s+account/, @LINES) && (grep /objectClass:\s+ifastUser/, @LINES) #&& (my ( $PRODS ) = /ifastProducts:\s+(.+)\s*$/, $_) && (my ( $USER ) = /dn: uid=(\w+?),.+/, $_)) { push(@RESULT, $USER); #push(@RESULT, $PRODS, $USER); print join "|", @RESULT; #print OFILE join "|", @RESULT; #print OFILE "\n"; print "\n"; } }
    But this does not:
    undef $/; $/="\n\n"; while(<IFILE>) { my @RESULT=(); my @LINES=split (/\n/, $_); if ((grep /objectClass:\s+account/, @LINES) && (grep /objectClass:\s+ifastUser/, @LINES) && (my ( $PRODS ) = /ifastProducts:\s+(.+)\s*$/, $_) && (my ( $USER ) = /dn: uid=(\w+?),.+/, $_)) { #push(@RESULT, $USER); push(@RESULT, $PRODS, $USER); print join "|", @RESULT; #print OFILE join "|", @RESULT; #print OFILE "\n"; print "\n"; } }
      Do you really need to split the paragraph into lines? You can match a multiline string against a regex, too:
      #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; $/ = "\n\n"; while (<>) { my @result; if ( /objectClass:\s+account/ and /objectClass:\s+ifastUser/ and my ($prods) = /ifastProducts:\s+(.+?)\s*$/mg # The /m is +important here. and my ($user) = /dn: uid=(\w+?),./g) { push @result, $prods, $user; print join '|', @result; print "\n"; } }

      But if you need the array, you can have it. The , $_) part of your code does nothing, so remove it. Here is my attempt to do what you need:

      #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; $/ = "\n\n"; while (<>) { my @result; my @lines = split /\n/; if ( ( grep /objectClass:\s+account/, @lines) and (grep /objectClass:\s+ifastUser/, @lines) and (my ($prods) = map /ifastProducts:\s+(.+?)\s*$/g, @lines) and (my ($user) = map /dn: uid=(\w+?),.+/g, @lines +)) { push @result, $prods, $user; print join '|', @result; print "\n"; } }
