I'll help with the regex requirements.
#/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $text = "<tag>\n\tThe purpose of the applicant rating session is fo +r you,\nthe applicant, to provide a sample of your\t\neffective teach +ing skills.</tag>"; $text =~ s/\s+/ /g; # convert white space to a single space print $text;
The print statement is just there to show what's taken place.
edited to match the given example...
Of course, this still leaves a space between the tag and the text... dpuu and Ovid both give better ways of doing it... but I wasn't paying attention.

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.
