try this:
$str =~ s/(.[^\.]*)(\.?)/(substr("0" x 2 .$1, -2)).$2/ge;

    For the substr part, why not just:
    (substr ("0$1", -2))

    Update: In fact I don't see any reason for the second bracketed expression in the regex. Also I can't see how it expands the first hex number if that's necessary. Is this better? or have I missed something subtle?

    $str =~ s/(\.?[0-9a-eA-E]*)/(substr("0$1", -2))/ge;


      yep. your variant is an enhanced one. I tried only to make a general idea. :)

    Is my interpretation correct? The first () matches one or more non-dot characters and the second () matches the trailing . or nothing at the end of the string. Then you build a string that has at least two leading zeros and extract the rightmost 2 characters and tag on the trailing . or nothing. I quite like this solution as well. Both you and davorg have come up with good alternatives, thanks. I should think about using substr more - unfortunately it sits in my mind sharing a location with peek and poke! and so doesn't come out to play much these days.

[choroba]: Morning!
[Corion]: Hi choroba, Discipulus!
[Corion]: Yesterday I've been mulling over how to best generate HTTP requests from permutations of values but I haven't found a nice API for passing in the "template" of the HTTP request yet. I guess I'll have to do a SoPW for that
[Corion]: The API itself will basically be my $iter = generate_http_requ ests(method => 'GET', url => '/settings/:name', headers => ???, get_params => ['foo','bar']), but I'm not sure how to parametrize values in the headers and how to specify lists of ...
[choroba]: On the other hand, lots of options to receive the requests :-)
[Corion]: ... values to be used. For example, I think for headers, one would want to have various kinds of Content-Encoding headers, but for the get_parameters one would have various kinds of Bobby Tables
[choroba]: What about [metadoc:// Algorithm::Loops]?
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, but handing off the request to Dancer,Plack, Mojolicious,LWP is easy once I have the data filled into some structure ;))
[choroba]: Algorithm::Loops
[Corion]: choroba: I'm using that to generate the permutations, but I don't know how the user can pass the intended values to my function in a sane way
