( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi, i am working on my regexes, in this case backreferences. I found this code :

/\b(\w\w\w)\s\g1\b/;/

This code should find all three letter-doubles. Unfortunately i can't bring it to work, because there is little further explanation. i was hoping someone could give some useful comments about this line of code, maybe give a short example. I have added some code that i wrote , which finds all three-letter words and reports how many times each word occurs.Thanks

$term = 'Dit is het eerste het is niet het laatste Dit'; @woorden = split / /, $term; @let = grep (length($_)=3,@woorden); foreach(@let){ $aantal = $term =~ s/$_//g; if($aantal==0){next;} print "$_:"."$aantal\n"; };

  • 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).
