succinct - sort of, better - ???

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; # https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=11135746 use warnings; use Data::Dump 'dd'; local $_ = 'text <one 1> three <two 2> four <five 5> K <six 6> lastwor +d'; for my $len ( 30 .. length ) { my $text = s/^.{0,$len}\b\K.*//sr =~ s/<[^<>]*\z//sr . '...'; dd $text; }

Outputs:

"text <one 1> three <two 2> ..." "text <one 1> three <two 2> four..." "text <one 1> three <two 2> four..." "text <one 1> three <two 2> four ..." "text <one 1> three <two 2> four ..."

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