in reply to Regex word options

agree with ww. The '||' operator may be better suited here than the word boundary '\b'. Also, what are you trying with the '?' non-greedy quantifier? Are you looking for lines starting with these words? Perhaps I'm missing something, but you would probably benefit more from providing some input data.

    why not try:

    if( $inputStr =~ /^(Arranged\,|Transcribe\,)/ ){ ### do your stuff }

[Lady_Aleena]: My biggest problem with hashes at the moment is one with 2,501 keys.
[choroba]: how many event types are there?
[Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
[Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
[Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
[Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: I hope you know all too well that passing around "fancy" datastructures is a recipe for disaster :-)
[robby_dobby]: As in, it's-too-fancy- that-it-will-be- messy-to-handle
[choroba]: bit vectors as keys?
[robby_dobby]: Hmm, I keep falling asleep at my desk, while maintaining an active appearance. Am I getting old?
