ady has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I want a rexex s///e to bump up the build number, eg. from to I tried the following, but was stalled in the regex...

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $version = ''; # This works as expected $version =~ /(\d+\.\d+\.)(\d+)(\.\d+)/; $version = $1 . ($2 + 1) . $3; print "$version\n"; # but this won't compile, --- why? #$version =~ s/(\d+\.\d+\.)(\d+)(\.\d+)/{$1}$2+1{$3}/e; print $version;

Ok OK!! Folks, flowering TMTOWTDItis .. :-D Thanks! -- allan
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $version = ''; $version =~ /(\d+\.\d+\.)(\d+)(\.\d+)/; $version = $1 . ($2 + 1) . $3; print "$version\n"; $version =~ s/(\d+\.\d+\.)(\d+)(\.\d+)/$1.($2+1).$3/e; print "$version\n"; $version = do { my $v = [ split /\./, $version ]; $v->[2]++; join '.', + @$v }; print "$version\n"; $version =~ s/(\d+)(?=\.\d+\z)/$1 + 1/e; print "$version\n";

    Well, ... would {$1}$2+1{$3} normally compile?

    That /e means to evaluate the rhs like it was any other block of perl code.

    I suspect you want something more like $version =~ s/(\d+)(?=\.\d+\z)/$1 + 1/e;

    $version =~ s/(\d+\.\d+\.)(\d+)(\.\d+)/$1.($2+1).$3/e;
    (Works for me).jettero(++)'s more concise code also works.

    A regular expression free version (not arguing for or against):
    $version = do { my $v = [ split /\./, '' ]; $v->[2]++; join '. +', @$v };
