if ( $scalar !~ /[^12345]/ ) { print "match"; }

Hmm, that double negative sure is confusing. Maybe simplifying it would be a little clearer (I know regexes pretty well and I had to think about this for a second...)

if ( $scalar =~ /[^12345]/ ) { print "Illegal parameter: $scalar"; } else { print "Acceptable parameter: $scalar"; }
Maybe some would disagree but to me I like to say my regexes out loud to understand them and I find

if it matches any character that isn't a 1-5 then it is bad

much easier (read faster) to understand than

if it does not match any character that is not a 1-5 then it is good.

I agree im probably being a bit pedantic but I think you can see what I mean...

Writing a good benchmark isnt as easy as it might look.

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.
