You can use rindex to find the last occurrence of a substring in a string:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my @lexikon = sort { length $b <=> length $a } qw/ own known /; my $word = "unknown"; print rightside($word), "\n"; sub rightside { my $word = shift; my $length = length $word; for my $l (@lexikon) { return $l if $length - length $l == rindex $word, $l; } return q(); }
