 Need Help??
I have a string. \$a="2A2B2C". The values of A,B,C are stored in an array @p=(1.5,2.5,3.5). The result of \$a should be like this: (AA)*(50/100) (BB)*(55/100) (CC)*(60/100). The values of A,B,C should be repeated according to the adjacent number before that character. I may be wrong somewhere in the coding. The answer should be 28.4238 where as i am getting 2.165625. Here is the code which i used:
```\$a="2A2B2C";
@p=(1.5,2.5,3.5);
#print substr(\$a,0,1);
#print "\n";
\$b=length(\$a);
print "\$b\n";
for(\$i=0;\$i<\$b;\$i++){
\$a=~s/(\d+)(.)/\$2 x \$1/ge;
}
#print \$a;
for(1..\$b)
{
if(1==\$_)
{
\$c=substr(\$a,0,1);
\$r1=\$p[0]*(50/100);
print \$r1;
}
elsif(2==\$_)
{
\$c2=substr(\$a,1,1);
#print "\n\$c";
}
elsif(3==\$_)
{
\$c3=substr(\$a,2,1);
\$r2=\$p[1]*(55/100);
print "\n\$r2";
}
elsif(4==\$_)
{
\$c4=substr(\$a,3,1);
#print "\n\$c";
}
elsif(5==\$_)
{
\$c5=substr(\$a,3,1);
\$r3=\$p[2]*(60/100);
#print "\n\$r3";
}
elsif(6==\$_)
{
\$c6=substr(\$a,5,1);
#print "\n\$c";
}
}

Title:
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.
