This line:
my @out = split(\s(AND|OR)\s/i,$string);
looks screwy to me. Perhaps you meant:
my @out = split(/\s(AND|OR)\s/i,$string);
Update: Here is a quick rewrite that I believe does what you want...

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; my $string = "something and something else or this thing here"; my $new = join(' ', map {/^(and|or)$/ ? uc($_) : "tools.description LIKE \"%$ +_%\""} split(/\s*\b(and|or)\b\s*/,$string)); print "S:$string\n"; print "N:$new\n"; =OUTPUT S:something and something else or this thing here N:tools.description LIKE "%something%" AND tools.description LIKE "%so +mething else%" OR tools.description LIKE "%this thing here%"
Reading the complicated line from bottom to top.
  • We split the string into a list of and/or/other pieces.
  • Then convert that list using map, uppercasing and/or and putting some surrounding text around other.
  • Finally we join the list back together.

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.
