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.
