in reply to Re^2: split on the pattern of '),('
in thread split on the pattern of '),('

That fails for

$str = '(1,"(text),(text)", 123),(2,"(string)", 234),(...)';

    No it doesn't. The string you give contains "),(" three times, and my regex splits it at all three.

    use Test::More tests => 5; my $string = '(1,"(text),(text)", 123),(2,"(string)", 234),(...)'; my @parts = split m{ [)] [,] [(] }x, $string; # Prove that the split worked properly... # Firstly, joining the parts back with '),(' recreates the original st +ring. my $joined = join '),(', @parts; is($joined, $string); # Secondly, none of the individual parts contain '),(' unlike($_, qr{\Q),(\E}) for @parts; done_testing();
    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

      For the input I gave, the code you gave produced:

      GOT: (1,"(text GOT: text)", 123 GOT: 2,"(string)", 234 GOT: ...)

      But surely, it should produce:

      GOT: 1,"(text),(text)", 123 GOT: 2,"(string)", 234 GOT: ...

        Your first "GOT" line contains a substring "),(" thus it was not fully split on that substring.

        perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
