in reply to Regex Help

How would you write it?
Try something like so:

use strict; use warnings; while(<DATA>){ chomp; print $1,$/ if/(\D+?)\d+?/; } __DATA__ piratesofcareebian100 pirates of careebian100 pirates of careebian 100
Please also check these documentation perlre, perlrequick and perlretut

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.

    Thanks 2teez, Now I have 1 more doubt. pls can u? If the data is like below, how we can do it?
    $line = "pirates1 of careebian 100"; $line = "pirates2 of careebian 100"; $line = "pirates3 of careebian 100";
    and I need the output as "pirates1 of careebian" & "pirates2 of careebian" & "pirates3 of careebian"

      then change this print $1,$/ if/(\D+?)\d+?/;
      to
      this print $1,$/ if/(.+?)\s+?\d+?/;

      UPDATE:
      In case, you have all these data in the same file you can try this:

      use strict; use warnings; while(<DATA>){ chomp; print $1,$/ if/(.+?)(\s+)?\d+?$/; } __DATA__ piratesofcareebian100 pirates of careebian100 pirates of careebian 100 pirates1 of careebian 100 pirates2 of careebian 100 pirates3 of careebian 100

      Output
      piratesofcareebian pirates of careebian pirates of careebian pirates1 of careebian pirates2 of careebian pirates3 of careebian
      Please, check the reference I mentioned in my first post on this thread.
      Hope that helps
