Perl 5 regular expressions[Answered]

29 March 2006 - 08:38 PM

I am in the process of learning Perl. Is there anyway to store a regular expression in a variable. For example, the expression /\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}, is there anyway to store it in a variable called say phone_number and use the variable name in place of the actual expression in pattern matching etc. I've searched Google without much luck. Of course it is possible I've over looked something. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. [Edited by - prh99 on March 31, 2006 1:22:08 AM]
