in reply to Replace the nth occurence

I like your solution for replacing the nth occurrence of a character within a string. I don't know whether the following is a 'better suggestion,' but what about initializing $n (for the nth) to the desired occurrence:

use strict; use warnings; # Replace second comma my $n = 2; my $str = 'a,b,c,d'; $str =~ s/(,)/!--$n ? '|' : $1/ge; print $str;

[Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
