Hi Perl Monks, have a simple regex issue where I wish to omit dashes from the following numeric variable: 0001144204-09-017358 . Simple, but clearly I lack the skills to get 'er done. Relevant code appears below. As is, the code extracts everything prior to the first dash. I need the entire expression (i.e., all digits in continuous fashion without the dashes, 000114420409017358 ). This variable is numeric. I'm embarrassed to say the least. Thanks for tolerating me!

my $access_num=-99; #several other lines betweeen here, omitted for brevity; if($line=~m/^\s*ACCESSION\s*NUMBER:\s*(\d*)/m){$access_num=$1;}

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.
