( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hrm, why arent you using regexes? I'm no master, but I think this will help:
m|\*\*(\w+)\b|g If you have all the text in a scalar, you can do this:
while($text =~ m|\*\*(\w+)\b|g) { print "Found: " , $1 , "\n"; }
Is this what you want? Or was there some reason you're using TK's functions??


Update: explanation of regex
m| \* #literal asterisk \* #ditto ( #start capture \w+ #one or more word characters aka [A-Za-z0-9_] ) #end capture \b #word boundary |gx #/x allows whitespace, /g makes it global (restart from last m +atch position in this case)
In case you're not familar with regexes, run this: perldoc perlretut :)

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.
