( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In the cases you've shown, there's whitespace enclosing the text you want, so you can use a lookbehind and lookahead to capaure the enclosed text:

use warnings; use strict; while (<DATA>) { print "$1\n" if /(?<=\s)([a-z\s]+)(?=\s)/i; } __DATA__ 1) some text 2) 1. some text 2. 1) some text 2. 1. some text 2. 1) 2)


some text some text some text some text

Hope this helps!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
