Another alternative would be to use a lookup table. It doesn't gain you much except, perhaps, readability in this particular instance where you are just losing the leading hyphen. However, it would be more useful in tranforming text further, e.g. 'UK' => 'United Kingdom'.

use strict; use warnings; my ( $target, $cust, $cotime ) = @ARGV; my %lookup = ( q{-SMC} => q{SMC}, q{-FET} => q{FET}, q{-China} => q{China}, q{-SBM} => q{SBM}, ); if ( exists $lookup{ $cust } ) { $cust = $lookup{ $cust }; print qq{Customer set to $cust\n}; } else { warn qq{Customer $cust not recognized\n}; }

I hope this is of use.

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.
