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

I had to take a stab at this. I am not proud of having to insert the final loop to filter out repeats, but maybe someone else can fix that. ;)

This solution splits each data element by underscore and sorts by both the left and right, which hopefully will line up any stray adjacent elements and prevent having to look behind.

use strict; use warnings; my %ordered; for (<DATA>) { chomp; my ($left,$right) = split /_/, $_, 2; push @{ $ordered{$left} }, $right; } my @matches; for my $key (sort keys %ordered) { my $last = 0; for (sort @{ $ordered{$key} } ) { push @matches, "${key}_$last","${key}_$_" if $_ - $last == 1; $last = $_; } } my %seen; for (@matches) { print "$_\n" unless $seen{$_}++; } __DATA__ X_203 2L_33 3L_45 X_202 2L_34 X_204 2L_32 3L_87 3L_88

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
