If you want to increment the value as each substitution is made, consider using the /e modifier for your substitution regex, which evals the replacement text before making the substitution. Something like this might work, but only if you have a matching number of opening and closing tags, and only if none of them are nested

my $bpt_counter=0; my $ept_counter=0; for ($YOUR_ENTIRE_TEXT_IN_ONE_STRING) { s/(&lt;p&gt;)/++$bpt_counter;qq(<bpt i="$bpt_counter" x="$bpt_counte +r">$1</bpt>)/eg; s|(&lt;/p&gt;)|++$ept_counter;qq(<ept i="$ept_counter">$1</ept>)|eg; } #just to be safe warn "Uh-oh!\n" unless $bpt_counter == $ept_counter;

$,=qq.\n.;print q.\/\/____\/.,q./\ \ / / \\.,q.    /_/__.,q..

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.
