in reply to Possible first post syndrome remedy

Sometimes those 3 responses are worded differently or take different approaches. In any event, I would venture that more often than not when this occurs the answer was already readily available. What's three more answers to a FAQ?

perl -wpe "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"

    So true... within each response one can see a little window into the responders soul:
    Angry monk:
    site how to The Old Perl Monks FAQ What makes a bad question? Before You Post ... How (Not) To Ask A Question How to RTFM How to ask questions the smart way
    All forrest no trees monk:
    use strict or die;
    Curt monk:
    see pacopod
    I already asked that monk:
    I already asked that here.
    Too much time on his hands monk:
    Here are several wonderful nodes on the subject by our beloved brother tilly that I have found useful.
    No time on his hands monk:
    Don't reinvent the wheel, use God::Paco from the CPAN.
    Too helpful monk:
    As you see in the code below, I've rewritten your regex and incorporated a rather interesting example of the Swartzian Transform. Also, I've made it object-oriented to improve readability.
    Module monk:
    I've written a module for this that I haven't published to the CPAN yet.
    Column monk:
    I've already written a column about that.
    Benchmark monk:
    Your solution is very slow compared to Perl's native paco function:
    Benchmark: timing 10000 iterations of paco, wako... paco: 4 secs ( 3.97 usr 0.01 sys = 3.98 cpu) wako: 6 secs ( 4.97 usr 0.00 sys = 4.97 cpu)
    Einstein monk:

    (UPDATE: Fixed some thread display issues. Funny how an HTML definition list looks different in a thread than as a stand alone node.)

    (UPDATE 2: Doing an XHTML version of a DL seems to fix the formatting on the different views (Thanks to Aristotle for the idea). Let me know if there are still problems. Also, how about golf monk? )


      What about Comedian monk?

      ++ BTW. :-)

      "My two cents aren't worth a dime.";

      Golf monk:
      I've shorten your code to 13 strokes perl -0777pale '$_=@F'
      Scoundrel anonymous monk:
