Thank you very much for your trivial correction, it was spot-on. I'm learning Perl via an older copy of O'Reilly's Perl CD collection, and had not yet seen an example of using /s as an if test. Works like a charm.

As far as the Unicode problem, see my reply to the previous reply.

    Sorry, the 'trivially' wasn't meant as in 'trivial problem' but more like 'less sophisticated solution', i.e. without packing it into one regex or using negative lookahead (which I wanted to mention, but I couldn't remember the name, which was ample proof to me that it is a non-trivial solution). ;-)
      I had replied to your message, but apparently it vanished. I had no problem with your usage of the term 'trivial', and I appreciate you not giving a highly-dense solution as I'm still learning the language and high density would require more brainpower than I'm willing to devote to it. I also plan on posting this code on for other DBAs to use and modify, and by using a simpler, 'trivial' implementation, the code will be more easily modified by others. If they know how to make it more dense, let 'em.
