Okay, I've managed to get this to work perfectly with a regular match (//) - but when I try to do a substitution(s///), the pattern fails to match anything - and no substitution is done. I'm calling the program like this: -r "s/matt/matthew/" -i -g, with the text 'matt, Matt'. Here is the code that processes the substitution bit:
if($options{r}){ #variable grab, add flags to pattern if they exist. my $pattern = $options{r}; $pattern .= 'g' if $options{g}; $pattern .= 'i' if $options{i}; $pattern .= 's' if $options{s}; #compile that stuff with eval my $compd_pattern = eval "qr($pattern)" or die $@; print "Please enter the text you wish to run the pattern on: "; my $text = <STDIN>; chomp $text; #do work and display if($text =~ $compd_pattern){ print $text; } else{ print "$pattern on \n\t{$text} Failed. "; } } #end R FLAG

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
