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

Fun problem! Here is my take. The bulk of the work is done via a regex, and since the target delimiters appear first, reversing the string makes the matching easier. I do not recommend this solution for production, but rather as a learning experience. It assumes the roles are uppercase characters between 2 and 4 chars in length.

use strict; use warnings; my $str = scalar reverse "QB Carson Palmer RB Chris Ivory RB Eddie Lac +y WR A.J. Green WR John Brown WR Davante Adams TE Martellus Bennett F +LEX Jeremy Hill DST Panthers"; for ($str =~ /(.*?[A-Z][A-Z][A-Z]?[A-Z]?)/g) { $_ = scalar reverse $_; chomp( my ($role,@name) = split ); print "$role -> @name\n"; } __DATA__ DST -> Panthers FLEX -> Jeremy Hill TE -> Martellus Bennett WR -> Davante Adams WR -> John Brown WR -> A.J. Green RB -> Eddie Lacy RB -> Chris Ivory QB -> Carson Palmer

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.
