in reply to Subroutines in a regex?

busunsl is right, but I'd like to add another feature and DWIM[1] to your code:
s/(SUM(\d*))/&sum($2)/eg
For I think you want to have the SUM characters stripped off, don't you?

    Sorry to disagree, but you don't have to put parenthesis around the whole pattern, it will be substituted anyway.
