++ for asking a complete question. Here is a complete answer:

use warnings; use strict; my @f =( "Figure. 89-9","Figure 12-8","Figure 1.2"); foreach (@f) { print " $1\n" if /(\d+[-.,]\d+)/; }

    Just expanding upon your good answer to include the abbreviation 'Fig':
    perl -E 'my @f =("2013-06-01", "fig 1-1", "Fig. 2.2", "Figure. 89-9"," +Figure 12-8","Figure 1.2"); foreach (@f) { print " $1\n" if /fig(?:ure)?\.?\s(\d+[-.,]\d+)/i; }' 1-1 2.2 89-9 12-8 1.2
