ZZamboni is right about using String::Approx to get this done. But be forewarned: String::Approx runs about as fast as a one-legged dog. I don't remember how much slower (the info is in the Perl Cookbook which I can't find since I moved, sniff, sniff), but I seem to recall it's something like 10 times slower than a typical regex. Thus, you don't want to use if if you can avoid it, and if you can't, try to avoid iterating over it.


Update: kudra has her copy of the Cookbook (I'm so jealous) and says that it is 10-40 times slower. If she's wrong, we'll all just fly over to the Netherlands and have a little "chat" with her about supplying us with innacurate data. Then we'll party.

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.
