Here's a non-recursive way which I think fits your criteria:

use strict; use warnings; use Test::More; my $wiki = '_/one *two*/ three_ null _/four *five*/ six_ null _/seven *eight +*/ nine_'; my $expected = '<u><i>one <b>two</b></i> three</u> null <u><i>four <b>five</b></i +> six</u> null <u><i>seven <b>eight</b></i> nine</u>'; my %h = ( '*' => 'b' , '/' => 'i' , '_' => 'u' , ); my $DBG = 1; sub flip { my $s = shift; my $z = $h{$s}; $h{$s} = $z =~ /\// ? substr ($z, 1, 1) : "/$z"; return "<$z>"; } sub tf { diag "Pre: '$_'\n\n" if $DBG; s{([_*/])}{flip($1)}eg }; $_ = $wiki; diag "IN <= '$wiki'\n\n" if $DBG; tf(); is ($_, $expected, " repeated replace works"); done_testing;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
