in reply to One line assigment statement with regex match

This looks like a good case for Regex::Presuf i.e
use Regex::PreSuf; my $lineFromSomeTextFile = "your line right here\n"; my @terms = qw/ something matching a line /; my($word) = $lineFromSomeTextFile =~ /(${\presuf(@terms)})/; # or without PreSuf my($word) = $lineFromSomeTextFile =~ do {local $" = '|'; "(@terms)"}; print "found '$word' in: $lineFromSomeTextFile"; __output__ found 'line' in: your line right here

    Just because I really like grinder's Regexp::Assemble, and think such a cool module needs more exposure:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use Regexp::Assemble; my $lineFromSomeTextFile = "your line right here\n"; my $ra = Regexp::Assemble->new->add( "something", "matching", "a", "line" ); print $ra->re . "\n"; # because the output is cool # and sometimes educational my($word) = $lineFromSomeTextFile =~ /($ra)/; print "found '$word' in: $lineFromSomeTextFile";

    (For more on Regexp::Assemble see: Why machine-generated solutions will never cease to amaze me.)
