My grateful thanks to you all, particularly Rolf for your suggestions and prodding, and haukex for confirming the bug in Perl v5.26.*.

haukex, what did you search to find the bug references you cited?

BillKSmith, perltidy is new to me. But I tried it on my sample code; it did nothing with it (short of changing the whitespace). It didn't flag any issue with it.

Meanwhile, I've punted. The actual code was this:

s{\s(")?(\w+):(\w)((([^"\n]*)")|([^\s\n]*)([\s\n]))} { " <a>$2:$3" . ( ($1 && $5) ? "$6</a>" : "$7</a>$8" ) }eg;

That finds phrases like 'source:tag' and 'source:some tag' and wraps each in HTML anchor tags. I rewrote it like this:

my $p = qr{\s(")?(\w+):(\w)((([^"\n]*)")|([^\s\n]*)([\s\n]))}; s|$p| " <a>$2:$3" . ( ($1 && $5) ? "$6</a>" : "$7</a>$8" ) |eg;

So the full search-and-replace operation fits fine on one line.

Thanks again. Enjoy what's left of your holiday, wherever you are.

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
