in thread Ternary inside a regex

Thanks, izut!

Changed my code to the following and it works:

$message =~ s~\[size=(.+?)\](.+?)\[/size\]~($1 > 5) ? "<font size=\"5\ +">$2</font>" : "<font size=\"$1\">$2</font>"~eisg;

    I think this way is easier to read:
    message =~ s~\[size=(.+?)\](.+?)\[/size\]~"<font size=\"".(($1 > 5) ? +5 : $1)."\>$2</font>"~eisg;

    surrender to perl. your code, your rules.
      Nice! I wanted to do that but didn't manage to - I didn't have the parentheses.

      Thanks :)
