in reply to change [A-Z] to U, [a-z] to L with one regex?

There are more than just upper-case and lower-case letter characters. Decide what you want to do with those you haven't considered yet, and put them into the map.

use Unicode::UCD qw(charinfo); my %category_map = ( Lu => 'U', # letter, upper Ll => 'L', # letter, lower ); my $r = 'SomEThingWithMIXEDRegiSter'; $r =~ s { (.) # capture the character } { $category_map{ charinfo(ord $1)->{category} } }egmsx; # ULLUULLLLULLLUUUUUULLLULLL

    what about punctuation and numbers? =)

    my 2

    DB<141> $r = 'SomEThingWithMIXEDRegiSter;.?=356'; => "SomEThingWithMIXEDRegiSter;.?=356" DB<142> $r =~ s/(.)/ $1 eq "\u$1" ? ($1 eq "\l$1" ? $1 : "U" ) : ($1 + eq "\l$1" ? "L" : "X" ) /ge => 33 DB<143> $r => "ULLUULLLLULLLUUUUUULLLULLL;.?=356"

      I'm pretty sure $1 eq "\u$1" can fail for some characters it shouldn't fail for.

    Simpler solution not limited to non-ASCII chars:

    s/(\p{Lu})|\p{Ll}/ defined($1) ? 'U' : 'L' /eg;
