Tk text widget indices.by perl_seeker (Scribe)
|on Jul 16, 2003 at 05:25 UTC||Need Help??|
perl_seeker has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a text file like this:
I'm opening this file in a Tk text widget and searching for
the pattern **.
Then for each match found,
I need to extract the word next to the pattern
for example the word "until"
Here's the code I tried:
The value of $result is printed as 1.4(5th char on 1st line)
Then $start holds the value 1.6(1.4 for the first *, 1.5
for the 2nd *,1.6 for the character 'u' in the word 'until')
Then I need to extract all the chars from 'u' to 'l'(all
chars in 'until')
But these lines in the code:
print only the first character i.e. 'u'.
What could be the problem here? Any help would be appreciated.
