in reply to loop execution

A quick try:

my $string = join \000, @code; $string =~ s!("\w+")!<b>$1</b>!g; @newcode = split /\000/, $string;
See perlre. The regex should be executed each time in the loop BTW. Are you sure that not all the text is in one item for some reason? Try the g modifier after your regex, see if that cures it.

I also changed the regex a bit. See 7 Stages of Regex Users and Death to Dot Star!. Depending on the complexity of your input, you might be better of with Parse::RecDescent or siblings.

    Yes the g cured it. I've looked over some of the regex things you've directed me to. Thanks. It was a good read...the learning exepeience kinda lost me in the middle, but now I know how powerful regex's in perl can be.
