( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

G'day vsespb,

You could set up something like this just once:

my $d = qr{[0-9]}; my $w = qr{[A-Za-z0-9_]};

And then just use $w and $d instead of \w and \d. That gives you the added benefit of still having \w and \d available if you need them. Here's a minimal test:

$ perl -le ' my $w = qr{[A-Za-z0-9_]}; print q{With \x{424}:}; print 3+6 if "\x{424}" =~ /$w/; print q{With \x{42}:}; print 3+6 if "\x{42}" =~ /$w/; ' With \x{424}: With \x{42}: 9

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
