What about using a FSA based parser?

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Text::Diff; { my $INDENT_STEP=4; sub indenter { my ($expr)=@_; my $indent=0; my $result=''; pos($expr)=undef; while(1) { if ($expr =~ m{\G \s* ( \( [&|!] )}smxcg) { # combinatore: print, newline, inc indent $result.=(' 'x$indent)."$1\n"; $indent+=$INDENT_STEP; } elsif ($expr =~ m{\G \s* ( \( [^)=]+ = [^)]+ \) )}smxcg) { # test: print, newline $result.=(' 'x$indent)."$1\n"; } elsif ($expr =~ m{\G \s* ( \) )}smxcg) { # fine combinatore: dec intert, print, newline $indent-=$INDENT_STEP; $result.=(' 'x$indent)."$1\n"; } else { last; } } return $result; } } my $expr=q{(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(obje +ctClass=user)(!(homeMDB=*))(!(msExchHomeServerName=*)))(&(objectCateg +ory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*)))( +&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=contact))(objectCategory=group)( +objectCategory=publicFolder)(objectCategory=msExchDynamicDistribution +List) )))(objectCategory=contact)(proxyAddresses=smtp:* +}; my $expected=<<'END_EXPECTED'; (& (& (& (& (mailnickname=*) (| (& (objectCategory=person) (objectClass=user) (! (homeMDB=*) ) (! (msExchHomeServerName=*) ) ) (& (objectCategory=person) (objectClass=user) (| (homeMDB=*) (msExchHomeServerName=*) ) ) (& (objectCategory=person) (objectClass=contact) ) (objectCategory=group) (objectCategory=publicFolder) (objectCategory=msExchDynamicDistributionList) ) ) ) (objectCategory=contact) (proxyAddresses=smtp:* ) ) END_EXPECTED my $ret=indenter($expr); print "ok\n" if $ret eq $expected; print diff \$ret,\$expected, { STYLE => 'Unified', };

Most of my code is tested...

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
