( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello, I am writing a script to parse css files. I need a regex that will seperate lines similar to this:
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Geneva, san-serif; font-size: .69em; color: #666666
Into something like this:
font-family
Verdana, Arial, Geneva, san-serif
font-size
.69em
color
#666666
The numbers of names and values is dynamic. Some css selectors have 1 name value pair, some have half a dozen. I can write a regex that grabs one name value pair but I am stumbling over writing one that will match each pair in the string. Thanks in advance for any help!

Title:
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).
