Further to tybalt89's comment:

... your regex works ... works great for unsigned numbers ...
... it does not work with unsigned numbers ...

I assume you mean signed numbers in the second case; if so, please supply representative test cases: just what output do you expect for -255, -256, -65535, -65536, etc.

And I would strongly suggest concentrating on edge cases in your test cases, e.g. something like
    0, 1, 255, 256, 65535, 65536, 16777215, 16777216, 4294967295
rather than
    2 20 200 2000 20000 200000

Update: Also, are you aware that the sprintf 'x' format conversion is essentially unsigned:

Win8 Strawberry (32) Mon 08/30/2021 18:24:36 C:\@Work\Perl\monks >perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings printf "%08x \n", -256; printf "%08x \n", 4294967040; ^Z ffffff00 ffffff00

Give a man a fish:  <%-{-{-{-<

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.
