in reply to Why do I get regexp chars in split?

You don't want (capturing) parentheses, you want square brackets (a character class, see perlre):

my $string = "foo / bar & etc"; my @parts = split(m# [&/] #,$string); print join("\n",@parts,"");

(Note the extra null string to tack a newline onto the "etc", and the use of a different matching delimiter to avoid the need to escape the forward slash -- the ampersand never needed to be escaped )


The intelligent reader will judge for himself. Without examining the facts fully and fairly, there is no way of knowing whether vox populi is really vox dei, or merely vox asinorum. — Cyrus H. Gordon

Corion idly wonders about creating a series of HTTP requests. There seems to be no framework to generate a series of HTTP requests, like "try all these requests"
[Corion]: This is vaguely inspired by that list of "nasty" strings, which I'd like to replace among HTTP parameters, just to see whether the application crashes, but also for easy downloading of a list of URLs etc
[Corion]: Maybe I'll just conoct something using Algorithm::Permute to create an (OO) generator for such requests, or a simple function.
[Corion]: For testing I imagine one would want to test a random sampling of such "bad"/"unexpected" requests, while for downloading, one would want to generate them all in order, but not necessarily as a huge list
