in reply to pick a word contaning reg-ex

There are several things that you should, yourself, search for answers to.   First, how to write a regular expression that searches for “one-or-more Word characters followed by an exclamation mark.”   Then, the meaning of the idea “greedy,” and how to specify it.   Finally, how to perform more than one regular-expression match (in a loop ...) within a single string.

The information is there e.g. in perldoc perlre.   If patiently read from stem to stern.
