in reply to How to get each character in string value

You may want something like this?

use strict; use warnings; my $string = "Hello World"; while($string =~/./g){ print "$&\n"; }

Or,

use strict; use warnings; my $string = "Hello World"; my @string = split(//,$string); for my $str (@string){ print "$str\n"; }

    According to perldoc perldata (paragraph for $MATCH) I would avoid the use of "$&"; I would capture the pattern and use "$1" instead.

    use strict; use warnings; my $string = "Hello World"; while($string =~/(.)/g){ print "$1\n"; }
    But usually I prefer the split() solution.

Eily thought about Neko Case first, something might be wrong with my brain's wiring
[virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
[ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
virtualsue waves back
[Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
[Corion]: I think I saw virtualsue more recently in person than online :-D
[virtualsue]: It's true that there was a bigger gap between the 2 yr old post and the one before it
[ambrus]: yes, I probably just didn't see you two years ago, because I'm not in perlmonks much
[virtualsue]: Nor am I :-)
[talexb]: virtualsue Heh .. long time no see! :)
