This post makes excellent points! Just to expand a little on regex testing - having many test cases helps:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use warnings; use strict; use Test::More; #use re 'debug'; # optional my $regex = qr/(foo|bar)(quz|baz)?$/; # "match / doesn't match" tests like "foo", $regex; like "bar", $regex; like "foobar", $regex; like "fooquz", $regex; like "foobaz", $regex; like "barbaz", $regex; like "foobarquz", $regex; like "foobarfooquz", $regex; unlike "foobarquzbaz", $regex; unlike "quzbaz", $regex; unlike "hello", $regex; unlike "foo ", $regex; # etc. # check capture groups ok "foobar" =~ $regex; is $1, "bar"; is $2, undef; ok "foobarquz" =~ $regex; is $1, "bar"; is $2, "quz"; ok "foobaz" =~ $regex; is $1, "foo"; is $2, "baz"; # etc. # and/or check return values in list context is_deeply [ "foobar" =~ $regex ], [ "bar", undef ]; is_deeply [ "fooquz" =~ $regex ], [ "foo", "quz" ]; is_deeply [ "barbaz" =~ $regex ], [ "bar", "baz" ]; # etc. # an example with /g return values is_deeply [ "foobarquzbaz" =~ /[aeiou]/g ], [ "o", "o", "a", "u", "a" ]; # same thing, written differently: my @matches = "foobarquzbaz" =~ /[aeiou]/g; is_deeply \@matches, [ "o", "o", "a", "u", "a" ]; done_testing;

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.
