That doesn't work:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; $_ = "this that some other foo bar baz"; if (/(this)\s*(that)\s*(some)\s*(other)\s*(foo)\s*(bar)\s*(baz)/) { my ($this, $that, $some, $other, $foo, $bar, $baz) = ($1 .. $+); print "$this, $that, $some, $other, $foo, $bar, $baz\n"; } __END__ Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at , , , , , ,
What does work is:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; $_ = "this that some other foo bar baz"; if (/(this)\s*(that)\s*(some)\s*(other)\s*(foo)\s*(bar)\s*(baz)/) { my ($this, $that, $some, $other, $foo, $bar, $baz) = map {;no strict 'refs'; $$_} 1 .. $#-; print "$this, $that, $some, $other, $foo, $bar, $baz\n"; } __END__ this, that, some, other, foo, bar, baz
A trick I've been using for quite a long time. ($#+ instead of $#- works as well).
