in reply to How to split a string based on the length of a sequence of characters within the string

The first argument to split should define what separates the items you want to extract. Wrong tool. You want a vanilla regex match.

my @chunks = $input =~ /(.{1,10})/g;

    Hello ikegami,

    Your code works perfectly also. By the way I never though to right the code like this my @chunks = $input =~ /(.{1,10})/g;. I did not imagine that can work the array equal to the string straight. Thanks for the tip and for your time to assist me with my question.

      I'm not sure what you mean by that.
      $input =~ /(.{1,10})/g
      returns a list of strings just like
      unpack("(A10)*", $input)
      does. (In list context, of course.)
