I'm not sure if I've understood your requirement as I can't tell where the 'g' comes from in your output. However, this should get rid of any 'X_' occurances after a '__'.

use strict; use warnings; my @strings = qw{ KHI0339B__P_H_Vita_Korangi_Ind_A HGW6120A__S_Popalzai_Cross_A }; my $rxPatt = qr{(?<=__)[A-Z]_}; foreach my $string ( @strings ) { print qq{Original: $string\n}; $string =~ s{$rxPatt}{} while $string =~ $rxPatt; print qq{Modified: $string\n\n}; }

The output is

Original: KHI0339B__P_H_Vita_Korangi_Ind_A Modified: KHI0339B__Vita_Korangi_Ind_A Original: HGW6120A__S_Popalzai_Cross_A Modified: HGW6120A__Popalzai_Cross_A

I hope this is of use.

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.
