Re: getting next word or number after another

in reply to getting next word or number after another

Always
use strict; use warnings;
It would have told you that $string_2 wasn't declared, and hence probably a mistake. It should be $string. Also, in your second regex, you probably want $next_word and not $string, and finally, $1, etc. get reset after each successful regex match. So you need to save them after each use. So:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $string = " info John 100 - 2000 Kent"; my $word = "info"; $string =~ /$word\s*?(\S+)/; my $next_word = $1; $string =~ /$next_word\s*?(\S+)/; my $next_word_2 = $1; print "The next word after $word is $next_word\n"; print "The next word or number after $next_word is $next_word_2\n";

    thanks so much

      You've been advised to do this many times (and argued against it), you don't seem to be learning from your constant mistakes.

        Waste of time
