As a hint - your professor is testing your grasp of patterns... this is a really important part of Perl that you'll eventually get to know much better as you get a chance to play around with it. You should read and go through perlre - it will tell you exactly how to approach this problem. As GrandFather said, once you take a stab at it, everyone here will be more than ready to help you with tweeks, confusions, and modifications.

Good luck!

P.S. As another hint: look in the man page for what represents a word boundry, and what it means for characters to be placed within square brackets.

Impossible! The Remonster can only be killed by stabbing him in the heart with the ancient bone saber of Zumakalis!
