in reply to perl substitute

Some thoughts:

  • s/foore/barstring/ works on $_ in isolation, but you're not setting $_, even implicitly.
  • You set $doc but never subsequently refer to it.
  • You use IO::File but never subsequently refer to it.
  • You alternate between slashes and hashes for regexp delimiters for no apparent reason
  • Looks like your input XML is not valid XML
  • and finally, you both use an XML parser and then attempt to just regexp your way through the string. Pick one, not both.

    Well he needs another regex-delimiter an substitutions with </end> tags to avoid the slash.

      Sure, but that's no reason to alternate - just use hashes throughout. Inconsistency is the bug's friend. :)

      Thank you. This helps.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
[ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
[choroba]: LanX was there a way to recover the numbers from the remaining information?
[Corion]: LanX: Ow ;)
