BTW, does anyone know of a CPAN module that can solve this problem directly?

It is hard to imagine why this specific problem would have its own solution.

The problem can be generalized into something worth solving. Assume we want to divide a list on break points. I will present an iterator solution.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; sub gen_divider { my %opt = @_; my $is_break = $opt{detect_break}; my ($curr, @list); return sub { for (@_) { if (! defined $curr || $is_break->($_, $curr)) { push @list, [$_]; $curr = $_; } else { push @{$list[-1]}, $_; } } return \@list; }; } my $break_point = sub { my ($item_to_test, $prev_break_point) = @_; return $item_to_test ne $prev_break_point; }; my $divide = gen_divider(detect_break => $break_point); for (split //, "ZBBBCZZ") { $divide->($_); } my $list = $divide->(); print Dumper($list);
This leaves a lot to be desired but the idea jumped into my head and so I thought I would share.

Cheers - L~R
