Can you also tell me how I can tell if the line has this format:

33c33 

Open in new window


which is:

$numberc$number

Open in new window


I try to catch this line and then capture the number in it as you told me in the previous post.

So it will be something like this:

my $catch = 0
foreach my $line (@fileContent){

if($line STARTS WITH diff){
   $catch = 1;
}

if ($catch =1 AND $line =~ SOME REGULAR EXP TO CATCH IF LINE HAS THE EXPECTED FORMAT){
    ($number) = ($LINE =~ /(\d+)/);
}

}

Open in new window

Your description of what you want is not real clear, but if you want to extract both numbers, there are several ways to accomplish that; here's one.

#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings;
use Data::Dumper;

my $str = '33c32';

my ($number_c, $number) = $str =~ /(\d+)/g;
print Dumper($number_c, $number);

Open in new window


You could also use this regex.
/(\d+)c(\d+)/

Open in new window
