Combine regular expression with a dispatch table. For each regular expression you define what action should take place. In this case, the actions will add values to a hash.

Parsing is performed from left to right. As matches are found the matched text is removed from the input string. Parsing stops when no patterns match or the input string is reduced to the empty string.

use Data::Dumper; my %patterns = ( qr/SS\s+(\d+)/ => sub { $_->{SS} = $1 }, qr/PL\s+([=#]?)(\d+)([=#])(\d+)/ => sub { $_->{SP} = $2; $_->{LP} = $4 }, qr/PV\s+([a-z]?\d+)(\.\d+)?/ => sub { }, # to be written... qr/RL\s+(\d+)([,'"])/ => sub { $_->{RL} = $1; }, qr/SA\s+(\d+)/ => sub { $_->{SA} = $1 }, qr/DS\s+(\d+)/ => sub { $_->{DS} = $1 }, qr/CT\s+([#^]?)\s*(\d+)\s+(\S+)\s+(\S+)/, => sub { }, qr/CL\s+([#^]?)(\d+)\s+(\S+)/, => sub { }, ); sub MAGIC { my $line = $_[0]; $_ = {}; $line =~ s/^\s*//; LOOP: while (length($line)) { for my $k (keys %patterns) { if ($line =~ s/^$k(?:\s+|\z)//) { $patterns{$k}->(); next LOOP; } } warn "got stuck on: $line\n"; $_->{leftover} = $line; last; } $_; } print Dumper( MAGIC("SS 21 PL 2#3 PV 51.3 CL #110 +0 RL 126' SA 1 +06 DS 93")); __END__ $VAR1 = { 'SA' => '106', 'DS' => '93', 'RL' => '126', 'SP' => '2', 'SS' => '21', 'LP' => '3' };

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.
