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

Why use negative-width assertions, when you're already using the /m flag? I like this:

use Data::Dumper; my $info = do { local $/; <DATA> }; my %lines; while($info =~ m/(\d+)\: (.+?)$/gm) { $lines{$1} = $2; } print Dumper (\%lines);

Of course, this also has an appeal:

my %lines = $info =~ /(\d+): (.+?)$/gm;

Passing a reference to Dumper allows Data::Dumper to dump the entire data structure without listifying it first.

Update: I miscopied the test data. Oops. Negative-width assertions are the way to go. :)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
