in reply to vowel_search

I wonder how this would benchmark since it doesn't rescan any part of the string:
use strict; my $vowels="aeiou"; for my $str (qw(abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz missing_vowels)) { my $tmp_v = $vowels; LOOP: { if ($str =~ /\G[^$tmp_v]*([$tmp_v])/i) { $tmp_v =~ s/$1//i; print "Succeeded: $str\n" and last LOOP unless $tmp_v; redo LOOP; } print "Failed: $str\n" and last LOOP; } }
Update:Well, its dog slow. If there's a ton of consonants at the beginning of the string, it might be worthwhile, but otherwise, forget it. Oh well, it was worth a try :)
