A couple things about turnstep's answer.. on a minor issue, it will only catch capital SRC, which might not catch them all. A more important point, though, is that IMG tags aren't the only ones with SRC attributes.. FRAME and JAVASCRIPT come to mind. For a nasty one, I'd try something like this:
$html =~ s/(<\s*img\s+.*src\s*=\s*)(")?.*?(?(2)")([\s>])/$1"newimage.j +pg"$3/sig;
To go through this in parts.. The first group of parentheses is catching the beginning of the tag, with optional whitespace checking, followed by a bunch of junk (the src attribute doesn't necessarily have to follow the img, e.g. <img border=0 src="img.gif">). This matches up to the src= part. Next, a quote is matched if there is one, and if there is a quote, the match is taken up to the closing quote. The match ends with either whitespace or a tag close. The $1 match is everything up to the name of the image, which is being preserved. Then, your new image is subbed in, and the original image name is disregarded. The i flag is needed to catch src and SRC (and sRc, etc.), and the s flag in case the image tag is broken up on to multiple lines. This is a pretty difficult regular expression (which went through moderate testing..), but if you're up to reading through the perlre man pages, you should be able to understand it all. Let me know if there are any questions about it.

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.
