Well the screamingly obvious way to do in Python what I think your
imprecise question is asking is:
"foo_bar zot plugh _ xyzzy".replace( "_", " ").split() ['foo', 'bar', 'zot', 'plugh', 'xyzzy']


Talking about screaming, I fled screaming from perl at about the perl 3
stage -- I can't help you any further; I don't want to turn into a
pillar of salt.

Why don't you ask stupid perl questions on comp.lang.perl? ?

Cheers,
John

Hello, I have a rather odd question. My company is an all java/oracle shop. We do everything is Java... no matter what it is... parsing of text files, messaging, gui you name it. My question is this... is Perl so much better at parsing text files and outputing that we would see a substantial speed increase? We process about 10 million records in flat files a day for reformatting before putting them in a DB. Also, when it comes to...

So, I download the latest "stable" tar for perl (5.8.7) and try to compile it on the Solaris 8 (SPARC) box that I administrate. I try all sorts of different switches, but I can't get it to compile. I need it to be compiled with threads. Anyone have any wisdom on how best to do this? Here's a transcript of my latest attempt. It's long; you might want to skip to the bottom, where I try "make" and the fatal errors start happening.

I'm trying to install to php the Perl-1.0.0.tgz package (from http://pecl.php.net/package/perl, enabling one to call perl libraries) to a pre-existing Solaris system. Unfortunately, the attempt fails in a rather dramatic way, spewing out thousands of "relocation remains"... I'm somewhat lost on what to do next, the documentation that came along with the Perl package is somewhat sparse. Anyone have suggestions? % uname -a

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
