ikegami you are definitely a "blackbelt".

I expanded your code to show relevance to the OP's question.
Your map shows something that took me a long time to figure out,
how to return "nothing" from a map{}!

use strict; use warnings; my @x = ("aaBxyz", "..Bxys", "bbxyzzy", "xxAx"); my @result = map { /^..(A|B)./ ? [ $1, $_ ] : () } @x; # @result is a "2-d array", references to "rows of array" # I swapped $1 and $_ because I thought the print out looked better # Of course every map{} can be expressed as a for loop... foreach my $row_ref (@result) { print "@$row_ref\n"; } =PRINTS: B aaBxyz B ..Bxys A xxAx =cut
I think this code is well past what the OP wanted.

ADDED: If the OP wants a subset of something, think GREP. If the OP wants to transform an input into something else, think MAP.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • 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).
