Re: [NuclearClam] Simple regex problem

why doesn't [1] return "cabbage"? does it only match things once and put it into one element? if so, what's the point?

....because it is matching a space followed by one or more a-z0-9_ followed by a comma so the first occurance is "bananas".....what's the point?...ask the regex author :)

why does this return 'in1' instead of just 'in'?

Because you are printing the subroutine as well as printing shift.


$blah = q(magic%jellybeans%have%sprouted%in%my%head);     

print bars('in');

sub bars { shift }

I'm not sure of the relevance of $blah in that example Cool
