I think part of the inefficiency is that you're running multiple regular expressions over your code. You could roll all these regular expressions into one regular expression, at least that's easy as long as the first character of any candidate match is different between all regular expressions:

my $re_num = qr{ [+-]? (?: \d+ (?:[.]\d*)? |[.]\d+ ) (?:e[+-]?\d+)? \b }x; # Float/real into N my $re_hexbin = qr{\b0(?:x[0-9a-f]+|b[01]+)\b}; # Hex/bin into N my $num_combined = qr{ $re_num | $re_hexbin }; $query =~ s/$num_combined/N/g;

If you want to replace both, strings and numbers in one go, you'll have to combine the regular expressions as above but capture into (say) $1 for numbers and into $2 for strings and then replace with S or N whether $1 or $2 is defined.

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.
