Of course you're right about split. My fingers went faster than my brain. I didn't know about the difference between /\s+/ and ' '. In fact Programming Perl seems to indicate that these are equivalent, but checking perldoc I can see that they are not.

Saved 'a lot' of trouble? Really? Did this take that much time? As for others thinking I was authoritative, I thought my posting was phrased in a questioning way. Sometimes replies are for the edification of the replier as well. Any way, I don't know about you but I wouldn't blindly implement solutions posted by random contributors (especially lowly acolytes ;-) without running a couple of test cases first.

Well, I'll continue typing as fast as I can and maybe some day I'll get one right.

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.
