Ew. That that sprinkles eval blocks all over. That's also suboptimal. The original poster had the best version already. I fixed my own code to be nearly similar except that it doesn't benefit from perl's ability to compile a static regex only once. Your code is a static regex but you're imposing eval {} at each match point.

An entirely different route might be to do some code generation so that the common parts are written only once, eval blocks aren't sprinked all over the place and the world is good again. The only issue is that now its not pretty anymore.

# Keep $escape somewhere or give it a proper name. my $escape = eval "sub {\n".join("\n",map " \$_[0] =~ s/\\$_/\\\\$_ +/g;", qw/t r n f/)."\n};"; $escape->( $text );

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.
