I have an expression along the lines of:

/KEYWORD([A|B]\d.+?)/\1/g;

is there simple way to get a list of all the [A|B]\d. that matched and how many times each one was encountered?

thanks

Try this:

map {$hash{$_}++} ($String =~ /KEYWORD([A|B]\d.+?)/g);

# as a result you get hash with matches as keys and number
# as value. That number shows how many times this match
# encountered.

# I'll print this hash for example

foreach (keys %hash) {
     print "$_: $hash{$_}\n";
}
