( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello Monks,

I want to replace a substring (relative path to a c-sources) in a string with another string (fullpath to sources) but it's not working at all.. I have no idea why?

Here my code:

use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; #For testing only a pseudo workspacepath my $Workspace = 'Workspace\\'; #This string has the substring which i want to repalce. my $string = '"_out\Dem_Deb_Cfg.h", line 189: warning #47-D: incompati +ble redefinition of '; if($string=~m/(\[[\S]+\.c\]|\[[\S]+\.h\]|\[[\S]+\.cpp\]|"[\S]+\.c"|"[\ +S]+\.h"|"[\S]+\.cpp")/i){ my $identifier = $1; chop($identifier); my $search = substr($identifier,1); my $replace = $Workspace.$search; if( not($string =~s#$search#$replace#)){ print"does not work :-( \n"; } }
Any help is highly welcome!
Best regards

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
