This should do the trick - Its only tested on your string though...
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $string = "ABC[GHI]XYZ"; my @array; splitstring($string); push @array, split//, $string; print "$_ " for sort @array; sub splitstring { return unless ( $string =~ /.*\[\w+\].*/ ); if ( $string =~ /.*(\[(\w+)\]).*/ ) { my $remove = $1; my $str = $2; print "rem = $remove\n str = $str\n"; push @array, $str; $string =~ s/\Q$remove\E//; } splitstring($string); }
I substututed the string with [987]ABC[GHI]XYZ[dfg] and that works as well.

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.
