Instead of using variables such as $noun1, $noun2, etc., you might want to consider encapsulating the values in a hash ($hash{noun1}, $hash{noun2}, etc.) when reading them in. This would first of all keep your namespace cleaner, and secondly, would allow the foreach loop to be rewritten as
foreach (@story) { s/\[(.*?)\]/$hash{$1}/g; print; }
or, for more fun
map { s/\[(.*?)\]/$hash{$1}/g; print } (@story);
The same effect could be achieved with the variable names you're reading into now, but would require the use of symbolic references, the use of which would probably get you dragged out into the street and shot here:)

Title:
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.
