    s/"//g will remove all " from your string, s/^"|"$//g; only the ones at the beginning and the end of the string.

    G'day torres09,

    Something like this:

    $ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -le ' my $x = q{"abc}; my $y = q{def"}; print substr $x . $y, 1, -1; ' abcdef

    -- Ken

      what if I wish to print it as abc,def

        print substr "$x,$y", 1, -1;

    #!/usr/bin/perl # this is long just to be readable # some clever Monks will no doubt show shorter methods... # Monks get stroppy if you don't use these... :-) use strict; use warnings; # Perl developers best friend.... use Data:Dumper; # array we want to process... my @array = qw( "abc def" ); # print array to show it contains the two elements... print "Array:".Dumper( \@array)."\n"; # join your array together... my $str = join( '', @array); # remove anything you don't want in the string... # this removes all quotes, but you can change it # to just start and end $str =~ s/['"]//g; # ...or $str =~ tr/'"//; # output result.... print $str;
    If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
