This is a very silly script I wrote to demonstrate the very possibility of how something could be done this way. The regex is to convert roman numerals to integers. It is neither useful nor witty.

use strict; sub l { return length shift } sub roman2int { $_ = shift; /(M*)(?{$a+=1000*l$1})(D*)(?:(?!M)(?{$a+=500*l$2})|(?{$a-=500*l$2} +))(C*)(?:(?![MD])(?{$a+=100*l$3})|(?{$a-=100*l$3}))(L*)(?:(?![MDC])(? +{$a+=50*l$4})|(?{$a-=50*l$4}))(X*)(?:(?![MDCL])(?{$a+=10*l$5})|(?{$a- +=10*l$5}))(V*)(?:(?![MDCLX])(?{$a+=5*l$6})|(?{$a-=5*l$6}))(I*)(?:(?![ +MDCLXV])(?{$a+=1*l$7})|(?{$a-=1*l$7}))(M*)(?{$a+=1000*l$8})(D*)(?{$a+ +=500*l$9})(C*)(?:(?![MD])(?{$a+=100*l$10})|(?{$a-=100*l$10}))(L*)(?:( +?![MDC])(?{$a+=50*l$11})|(?{$a-=50*l$11}))(X*)(?:(?![MDCL])(?{$a+=10* +l$12})|(?{$a-=10*l$12}))(V*)(?:(?![MDCLX])(?{$a+=5*l$13})|(?{$a-=5*l$ +13}))(I*)(?:(?![MDCLXV])(?{$a+=1*l$14})|(?{$a-=1*l$14}))(C*)(?{$a+=10 +0*l$15})(L*)(?:(?![MDC])(?{$a+=50*l$16})|(?{$a-=50*l$16}))(X*)(?:(?![ +MDCL])(?{$a+=10*l$17})|(?{$a-=10*l$17}))(V*)(?:(?![MDCLX])(?{$a+=5*l$ +18})|(?{$a-=5*l$18}))(I*)(?:(?![MDCLXV])(?{$a+=1*l$19})|(?{$a-=1*l$19 +}))(L*)(?{$a+=100*l$20})(X*)(?:(?![MDCL])(?{$a+=10*l$21})|(?{$a-=10*l +$21}))(V*)(?:(?![MDCLX])(?{$a+=5*l$22})|(?{$a-=5*l$22}))(I*)(?:(?![MD +CLXV])(?{$a+=1*l$23})|(?{$a-=1*l$23}))(X*)(?{$a+=10*l$24})(V*)(?:(?![ +MDCLX])(?{$a+=5*l$25})|(?{$a-=5*l$25}))(I*)(?:(?![MDCLXV])(?{$a+=1*l$ +26})|(?{$a-=1*l$26}))(X*)(?{$a+=10*l$27})/; return $a; } print roman2int shift;

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.
