in reply to Iterate string like, for(1..5) i.e. $stirng="1..5"; for($string)

my $range = "2..5,10..15"; # Split on commas my @range = split /,/, $range; # Expand any n..m @range = map { /(\d+)..(\d+)/ ? ($1..$2) : $_ } @range;

Assuming the resulting @range is small (where small is, say, less than 10,000 elements) this will do fine. Error checking is left as an exercise for the reader.
