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

It is difficult to explain in words (I do not know English very well),
here is the code:
open (my $file, '<', 'data.bin'); binmode $file; my $binary_data = <$file>; $binary_data =~ /(.)(.){$1}/; # how can I do something like that? #or better yet $binary_data =~ /(.)(.){(?{unpack 'H*', $1})}/; # ? # or may be /(.)(?{unpack 'H*', $1})(.){$^R}/; # ???
I would like to perform such a trick in regular expression. Possible?

Update

There is a solution (help my friend):
/(.)((??{'.' x $1}))/;
but, how I can in this example, assign values to three different groups?
$_ = "3aaaa\nbbbb\nccccc\nddddd"; /(\d)((??{'.*?\n' x $1}))/; print $2; # aaaa\nbbbb\nccccc\n # how to assign a value aaaa\n of $3, bbbb\n -> $4 etc ?
There are other solutions?

In reply to Regular expressions: interpolate the variable in the value of the number of repetitions for the group by 0day
