( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

As I understand your task (which seems to be different from BrowserUk), this should do it:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my %hash = (a=>2, b=>1, c=>5, d=>3, e=>4); my $input = "abcdaeec"; for (2, 3) { print "n=$_: "; my $n = $_ - 1; my @sums; while ( $input =~ /(.)(?=.{$n}(.))/g ) { push @sums, $hash{$1} + $hash{$2}; } print "@sums\n"; } __END__ n=2: 7 4 7 7 6 9 n=3: 5 3 9 7 7

Update: let YAPE::Regex::Explain explain what the regex does:

use YAPE::Regex::Explain; print YAPE::Regex::Explain->new( qr/(.)(?=.{1}(.))/ )->explain; __END__ The regular expression: (?-imsx:(.)(?=.{1}(.))) matches as follows: NODE EXPLANATION ---------------------------------------------------------------------- (?-imsx: group, but do not capture (case-sensitive) (with ^ and $ matching normally) (with . not matching \n) (matching whitespace and # normally): ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ( group and capture to \1: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- . any character except \n ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ) end of \1 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- (?= look ahead to see if there is: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- .{1} any character except \n (1 times) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ( group and capture to \2: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- . any character except \n ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ) end of \2 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ) end of look-ahead ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ) end of grouping ----------------------------------------------------------------------

And see perlop for what m//g does in scalar context (like the while (...) here).

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.
