Re: [fashimpaur] String Replacement Golf

I think you have it wrong.....

$a = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"; # EXPR
$b = 15; # OFFSET
$c = "Perl_Is_Fun"; # REPLACEMENT
$d = length $c; # LEN

sub mysubstr{$s=shift,$s=~s/^(.{$_[0]})(.{$_[1]})(.*)/\1$_[2]\3/,return$s};

If $s is shift then $_[0] is 15 .....thats fine!

However $_[1] is Perl_Is_Fun which cannot go inside curly braces.

Whichever way you do it either $_[0] or $_[1] will be letters which is invalid.
