in thread Splitting a string to chunks

thx for pointing out. what about
'regexpad' => sub { # padding the string my $padding = 8 - length($str%8) if length($str%8); #has to be 8 - m +odulo not modulo, thx johngg $str .= "x" x $padding; # dividing the string in parts of 8 chars my @arr = $str =~ /(........)/g; #remove padding $arr[-1] = substr($arr[-1],-$padding); }
although its a bit slower than the other 2 regex solutions
