#1: How to put an AND in a regex?

Posted on 2011-10-13 12:33:17 by hamann

=0A=
Hi,=0A=
=0A=
I am trying to write a regex that should only match when certain patterns a=
re not present, e.g. when a line does not start with either a digit or ALL-=
CAPS text. I figured I could use negative look-aheads for this.=0A=
=0A=
I can write it as:=0A=
=0A=
if (/^(?![[:upper:]][[:upper:]])/) {=0A=
if (/^(?!\d)/) {=0A=
s/^/<test>/;=0A=
}=0A=
else {=0A=
}=0A=
}=0A=
else {=0A=
}=0A=
=0A=
However, I was wondering whether there was a way of writing this as a singl=
e if loop, because there are much more than two situations that should not =
be matched.=0A=
=0A=
I tried to write it as:=0A=
=0A=
if (/^(?![[:upper:]][[:upper:]])|^(?!\d)/) {=0A=
s/^/<test>/;=0A=
}=0A=
else {=0A=
}=0A=
=0A=
but this means if one option is not matched the other one is matched, which=
is not what I want. So I need something that does the equivalent of "Don't=
match this AND don't match this". Is this possible in a if loop, or should=
I use something else?=0A=
=0A=
Thanks,=0A=

Hmm, probably you should. To use two of them in AND combination, just... use
two of them. )

/^(?![[:upper:]][[:upper:]])(?!\d)/

And it gets even better: you may mix any number of look-aheads in a single
regex this way. )

Am I missing something about why this approach won't work for you:

if ( ! /\A[[:upper:]][[:upper:]]/ && ! /\A[[:digit:]]/ )=20

Seems easier to understand.

for (qw (bcd 1num ASDSF two)){
print "$_\n" if !/^[0-9]/ and !/^[A-Z]+/;
}

How about

unless (/^[[:upper]]{2}/ or /^\d/) {
s/^/<test>/;
}

Which seems to me to be much clearer in purpose than anything else that
has been posted.

HTH,

Rob

Yet another way:

unless ( /^ (?: [[:upper:]]{2} | \d ) /x ) {
...
}
