in reply to I want you to convince me to learn Perl

Among the advantages of selecting Perl:

  • CPAN -- a library of thousands of well-tested, reliable modules that will save you re-inventing the wheel, time after time...
  • Its utility as a language for quickly protoyping complex programs -- and from which prototypes, translation to C (and company) becomes just a SMOP...
  • The fact that its tools/capabilities include such as OO; GUI development; and so on ... and so on.

One can surely belabor this list at much greater length... but I'll post this and encourage the Monks to provide futher incentive to choose Perl.

But, before I go, I second the observations by Monsignor choroba challenging your "lolgical side" with respect to readability and popularity.

If I've misconstrued your question or the logic needed to answer it, I offer my apologies to all those electrons which were inconvenienced by the creation of this post.

[ovedpo15]: it isn't homework. its a module I use at work. The process to add additional module isn't worth it. p.s never heard a university course which teach perl
[marto]: there are many, to this day.
[ovedpo15]: @Corion Yes I use the regex you showed me. its very good regex. although now i need to know that substring unit that comma
marto mad corrections to one around 18 months ago
[ovedpo15]: my code checks the value after that comma, if it isn't valid it will remove it. so I would like to remove the substring after that comma meaning getting the string before comma.
[hippo]: Are you sure that Text::CSV_XS isn't already installed at your work? It's such a useful module that it might well be there.
[marto]: pointing out the advantages of cpan modules is well worth in, as both developer and $client/$company benefit greatly
[Tux]: $src =~ m{^(.*),(.*)$/ and $2 !~ $valid and $src = $1;
[Tux]: s,/,},
