in thread Using a regex function from a hash

Your requirements are very vague.

  • You didn't specify which components are constant and which are not. I assumed "\" and "date : " are constant.
  • You didn't specify of which chars the variable parts could be made. I assumed what is represented by "GeorgeO" could contain spaces (which required specifying " at the parker inn"),
  • You didn't specufy from where the lines came. I assumed a file handle.
  • You didn't specify what to do with the extracted values. I print them.
while (<$fh>) { print("$1\n") if /\\(.*?) at the parker inn$/ or /^date : (\S+)/; }
