in reply to RegEx to match unique string of digits

GrandFather's suggestion of filter out the false matches afterwards is probably sufficient for you, and perhaps also more efficient (but do a Benchmark to be certain if time efficiency is an issue). However, maybe you need this in a larger pattern, and then you can use a negative look-ahead to avoid the mono-digit strings.

$_ = '2222222222 1234567890 123 0000000000 48192049281924 999999999999 +99'; print "$2\n" while /\b(?!(\d)\1+\b)(\d{10,}\b)/g; __END__ 1234567890 48192049281924

    Awesome suggestions everyone. I'll run some Benchmarks for sure and see how it works against my data. THANKS!
      RegEx always seems to drive me nuts when I am trying to work on a project! Once I get the right expression(s) though, it is amazingly powerful :) My last project was for ISAPI URL rewrites.
