Subject: In extract_bracketed, please include at least one example where there is no whitespace preceeding the bracket
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1009b
I have been trying without success to extract the bracketed text from a string where there is no whitespace before the opening bracket. I can not figure out from the examples in the POD of how to extract the brackets from the script below. #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings FATAL => qw( all ); use Text::Balanced qw(extract_bracketed); use Data::Dumper; my $text = 'A line with B<bold>, I<italic>, and B<I<bold and italic>> text.'; my @line = extract_bracketed( $text, '<..>' ); print Dumper(\@line); The result I get is... $VAR1 = [ undef, 'A line with B<bold>, I<italic>, and B<I<bold and italic>> text.', undef ]; Nothing was extracted, I'm guessing because there is no whitespace before the first bracket. Without an example I am lost. Lady Aleena PS. The list of uppercase characters and whole words before the bracket I want to extract for additional munging are: A ABBR ACRONYM B BIG CITE CODE DFN EM I KBD Q SAMP SMALL SPAN STRONG SUB SUP TT VAR.
