in reply to Eugh, regex :(

Please, post your real code. The error message says something about matching: ... =~ m%..., but your code is something about substitution, and it does not compile:

Substitution replacement not terminated at 753064 line 1.

    Hi,

    Thats all the code you should need.

    $post_message is just a text string, with the example I gave - and then it runs this:

    $post_message =~ s%\Q[URL=\E([\?\%\:\/a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)\Q][img]\E([\?\%\:\/a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)\Q[/img][/URL]\E%gix;

    (which is the line thats giving the error)

    Maybe its something to do with the regex?

    Cheers

    Andy
      % cat 753064 $post_message =~ s%\Q[URL=\E([\?\%\:\/a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)\Q][img]\E([\?\ +%\:\/a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)\Q[/img][/URL]\E%gix; % perl -Mdiagnostics 753064 Substitution replacement not terminated at 753064 line 1 (#1) (F) The lexer couldn't find the final delimiter of an s/// or s{}{ +} construct. Remember that bracketing delimiters count nesting leve +l. Missing the leading $ from variable $s may cause this error. Uncaught exception from user code: Substitution replacement not terminated at 753064 line 1. at 753064 line 1

      The error message says it all, if you want to substitute, you should tell perl, whats your substitution is.

        Oops, just saw that! Changed it, still getting errors :(

        It seems to be from this line still, cos if I comment it out - the rest of the script works fine:

        $post_message =~ s|\Q[img]\E([\?\%\:\/a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)\Q[/img]\E|[img]$1[/img]|sig;
        (the above is just a more basic version of what I'm trying, to see if I can try and track down whats going on)

        Driving me nuts :(

        Cheers

        Andy
