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

So  'a_________'  '%%a_____%%'  '123456789_' would be strings skooma would want to match? That wasn't my (limited) understanding after reading the OP.

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "for my $s (qw(a_________ %%a_____%% 123456789_)) { print qq{'$s' matches} if $s =~ /[[:alnum:]]+[_]+/; } " 'a_________' matches '%%a_____%%' matches '123456789_' matches

Update 1: And what about the  { } curlies?

Update 2: And please use code tags when you post. Please see Writeup Formatting Tips and Markup in the Monastery.

Give a man a fish:  <%-{-{-{-<

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
