Re: Help with speeding up regexby eversuhoshin (Sexton)

Hello Thank you all so much for the helpful suggestions. I will need some time to fully digest them since I am still learning perl :)
Basically, my script identifies the number of false positive words related to management guidance. I need to do this so I don't have to go through all the financial filings. So through manual processing, I figured out words that seem to be related to guidance but do not have anything to do with the actual guidance. The regex code that I posted is that list that I compiled. By counting the number of false positive words I know that this filing is irrelevant and I will not have read it later for processing.
I have changed the code a bit and used File::Map to speed it up but I am not sure if I am doing it right. Also, someone asked if the regex worked. Yes, regex works but it is slow and I am trying to make it faster.
I am also attaching some sample text
Thank you all again for everything!
