in reply to Parsing list

In Perl a very useful function is split, which splits up a string and places it into an array.

For Example,

my $str = "user:group:root:testing"; @user = split(/:/, $string);

Here @user holds the details of the $str.

As in your case you have only two fields delimited by ':', you can directly split and save the values into the variables as below,

my $yourstr = "user:pass"; my ($User,$Pass) = split (/:/,$yourstr); print "User:$User\n"; print "Pass:$Pass\n";

All is well
