    would "substitute zero or more occurrences of whitespace with nothing"


    Should read. Replace one or more occurrences of whitespace with a single space.

    string manipulations


    Hi all,
    <br>
    <br>
    I read the article and I must say it is well organized. I was wondering what level of programmers is this article geared to. In the future will there be articles geared to programmers with more knowledge and experience.

    where is the content?


    Hello,

    I am visiting the page for Part 6 of this series and I see no content other than an introductory paragraph. Where is the lesson?

    Good Explanation


    After looking at various other sites and a Perl book, this tutorial was by far more understandable.

    Re: Good Explanation


    I agree with Bob. This tutorial is excellent in setting a good basic foundation for writing perl scripts. Other books will only augment this.

    Re: tutorial


    I am using this course as a refresher and generally find it easy to read.
    <br>
    However, there do seem to be some lapses in accuracy.
    <br>
    For example,
    <br>
    <br>
    *****$line =~ s/a/e/gi;
    <br>
    <br>
    When I use this regex
    <br>
    'Angry young man' becomes 'engry young men' not 'Engry young men' as quoted in your lesson.

    I agree with Lucy


    I also found the Angry young man converted to engry, not Engry. Even after pasting the code directly.
    Otherwise, this is the best tutorial on PERL I've ever seen. - by far.
