This might be a bit more maintainable:
my %States = q{ AK Alaska LA Louisiana OH Ohio AL Alabama MA Massachusetts OK Oklahoma AR Arkansas MD Maryland OR Oregon AZ Arizona ME Maine PA Pennsylvania CA California MI Michigan RI Rhode Island CO Colorado MN Minnesota SC South Carolina CT Connecticut MO Missouri SD South Dakota DE Delaware MS Mississippi TN Tennessee FL Florida MT Montana TX Texas GA Georgia NC North Carolina UT Utah HI Hawaii ND North Dakota VA Virginia IA Iowa NE Nebraska VT Vermont ID Idaho NH New Hampshire WA Washington IL Illinois NJ New Jersey WI Wisconsin IN Indiana NM New Mexico WV West Virginia KS Kansas NV Nevada WY Wyoming KY Kentucky NY New York } =~ /\G\s*(\w\w)\s+(\w+(?:\s\w+)?)/g;
Once I discovered \G, "capturing splits" never really do much for me because the logic is usually so reversed.

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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
