( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a question related to "Calling a method within a double-quoted string" - I would like to call a method within regex match expression, like
print "Matched!" if $myvar =~ /\Q$myob->print\E/;
I can almost do it with 5.005+ as in:
print "Matched!" if $myvar =~ /(?{$myob->escaped})/;
However, I have to pre-escape the return result. Of course I can use a temporary variable, but that damages the readability. Unfortunately, I am stuck at 5.004 compatibility and (?{...}) is not supported. Also, I feel that it is my birthright to do this in one line. Is there a one-liner to do this? Also, is there a reason that the binding is not stronger for '->'?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
