in reply to Perl Regex to take the UC Words.

Use character class with uppercase letter [A-Z] with word boundary \b

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; while(<DATA>) { my @array = $_ =~ m/\b([A-Z]+)\b/g; print "@array\n"; } __DATA__ BROUGHTON VETERINARY GROUP. Leicestershire mixed practice seeks experi +enced vet to replace assistant relocating to Scotland GIRLING AND BOWDITCH VETERINARY SURGEONS We are looking for an experie +nced vet for our 5 vet mixed practice. STANHOPE PARK VETERINARY HOSPITAL. Due to a pregnancy epidemic we are +looking for 2 new vets, 100% small animal hospital in County Durham.

    Thx. Vinoth. That was very kind of you. but If there is digits we want to take, how we can do that... means "BROUGHTON VETERINARY GROUP123. Leicestershire456 mixed practice789 seeks experienced000 vet to replace assistant relocating to Scotland" and I want to take "BROUGHTON VETERINARY GROUP123" out of that.

      Try this way,

      use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; while(<DATA>) { my @array = $_ =~ m/\b([A-Z]+(?:\d+)?)\b/g; print "@array\n"; } __DATA__ BROUGHTON VETERINARY GROUP123. Leicestershire mixed practice seeks exp +erienced vet to replace assistant relocating to Scotland GIRLING AND BOWDITCH VETERINARY SURGEONS We are looking for an experie +nced vet for our 5 vet mixed practice. STANHOPE PARK VETERINARY HOSPITAL. Due to a pregnancy epidemic we are +looking for 2 new vets, 100% small animal hospital in County Durham.

      All is well
        Thx. Vinoth

        What about capitalized words later in the line? Shall they be excluded?

        use strict; use warnings; while(<DATA>) { my @array = $_ =~ m/\b([a-zA-Z]+[0-9]*)\b/g; foreach (@array) { last if /[a-z]/; print "$_ "; } print "\n"; } __DATA__ BROUGHTON VETERINARY GROUP123. Leicestershire mixed practice seek EXPE +RIENCED vet to replace assistant relocating to Scotland GIRLING AND BOWDITCH VETERINARY SURGEONS We are looking for an experie +nced vet for our 5 vet mixed practice. STANHOPE PARK VETERINARY HOSPITAL. Due to a pregnancy epidemic we are +looking for 2 new vets, 100% small animal hospital in County Durham.
