Hi,

The following script ads spaces around a specific match:

perl -pe 'BEGIN{$re=qr/@{[join"|",splice @ARGV]}/}s/($re)/ $1 /g' store

I'm looking for a way to specify controls so that spaces are not added around plural words:

example

wentstorestoday
wentstoretoday

The script will produce the following output:

went store s today
went store today

Is there a way to specify a plural to ignore?

Thanks
