Very good! I'm amused. But s/pox/plague/ (sorry, I'm a pedant, I know).

Update: I've just double-checked and, interestingly, both plague and pox are right - it varies between the original sources.

    Bah, can't figure how to reply to the original message. (My first contribution ever, and it has to be this .. oh, the shame! The humanity!)

    for (1) { for (1) { my @breach = ("dear", "friends"); }} # Henry V, of course # I know, hardly obtuse enough, but then being a mere novice ... my ($prick, $tickle, $wrong); my ($bleed, $laugh, $revenge) = undef; if ($prick) { $bleed = 1; } if ($tickle) { $laugh = 1; } if ($wrong) { $revenge = 1; } # Or warn "bleed" if /prick/; warn "laugh" if /tickle/; warn "revenge" if /wrong/;

[ovedpo15]: another question about regex. if I have a string like this: "a/b/,c/d/e,5" I would like to remove the string after the last comma so the output will be "a/b/,c/d/e" how to do so?
[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..
