in thread Perl substitution not working

The actual reason you aren't substituting properly is that you are printing @L1, but that array never gets modified by your substitution which acts on $line.

Not true:

my @L1 = qw(Abc aBc abC); for my $line (@L1) { $line =~ s/a/_/i; print "\@L1: <", join(", ", @L1), ">; \$line: <$line>\n"; } __END__ @L1: <_bc, aBc, abC>; $line: <_bc> @L1: <_bc, _Bc, abC>; $line: <_Bc> @L1: <_bc, _Bc, _bC>; $line: <_bC>

[1nickt]: Petroza to answer your question, no, no special permission is needed to post a question.
[LanX]: did you spam before? :)
LanX has to go/
[ambrus]: I hope we didn't mess up the spam filter rules again.
[ambrus]: Our spam filter rules disallow links to certain domains, and some suspicious pharses that have appeared in previous spam advertising cheap online whatevers.
[LanX]: some servers were lagging today, so I suppose the root cause
[LanX]: ambrus no recent patches
[Petroza]: no i haven't posted anything before. It was a more or less long question with a specific issue. I did post a title and the links i added where only part of the element i was searching within the code (so no purpose other than the question itself).
[1nickt]: Petroza can you go back in your browser to the preview screen, redact the links, and try to submit again?
[LanX]: copy and paste the text into your Petroza's scratchpad please
