my $str = 'Fsih my test variable is fsihd or is it gfsih or gfsih +d fsih'; # 1111 2222 3333 + 4444 my $substr = 'fsih'; my $regexp = qr/\Q$substr\E/; my $replace = 'fish'; my $instance = 3; # 3rd print("$str\n"); my $pre_count = $instance - 1; $str =~ s/((?:$regexp.*?){$pre_count})$regexp/$1$replace/; print("$str\n");

You might have noticed both of these are case sensitive. Both can be made case-insensitive. The non-regexp version is most likely much faster. The regexp version can handle regexps instead of constant strings.

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.
