Build a new array containing the indexes of the elements where sequences of equal strings start. For instance:
@a = qw(a a b b c c c d e e e e e f f) # ix: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 # 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 #start: * - * - * - - * * - - - - * - @start = (0, 2, 4, 7, 8, 13);
Then just perform the binary over @start, using $a[$start[$ix]] as the search key.

Once you find the index $ix corresponding to the searched element, the start and end offsets will be $start[$ix] and $start[$ix+1] - 1

Title:
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.
