[Corion]: ovedpo15: You could split on comma, and then join everything together, except the last part. Or you could match and make sure that the last part has no comma, like qr!,[^,]+$!, or you could use rindex.
[ovedpo15]: But I don't know the length of the string. will it still work?
[ovedpo15]: The only thing I know is that there is a comma at the end and a value after that
[hippo]: Try it and see. Your computer won't explode.
[Corion]: length will tell you the length of a string.
[Corion]: But if you are parsing CSV, again, let me point to Text::CSV_XS, which you should use instead
[hippo]: +1 for Text::CSV_XS
[ovedpo15]: Im not allowed to use additional modules, so I can't use it. looking for a simple regex to do this task though..
[Corion]: Ah, so this is homework? Then most likely, you should review your course material closer. It would greatly surprise me if the course material wouldn't mention the topics that will be used in the homework...
