Re: Re: Applying a RegEx in a variable
in thread Applying a RegEx in a variable
let`s keep dangerous content of the eval out of this...
print "profeth still\n" if /bird|devil/;
I want to eval the expression whilst retaining information on the special
RegEx vars ($1..n, $&,$`,$', etc, etc) It really SHOULD be possible
I`m actually very close to printing the regex to a file, run the file as a Perl
program, let it print the vars to another file, and read them back into the
parent.... Now that`s what I call desperation....
