Unless I'm growing senile, the 8088 (at 4.77 MHz) was the microprocessor in the original IBM PC, which was hardly an obscure machine, as well as its successor, the PC/XT. (There was a 286-based XT later, I think.) Isn't the 8088 just an 8086 with 8-bit instead of 16-bit bus to save some money in the supporting components?

Anyway, I answered 8088 because that was in the first computer I actually bought with my own money (not a trivial expense at 12 years of age, either, but it certainly ended up being a good long-term investment). Still, for some reason I've got a real soft spot for the Z80-based CP/M systems we used in school for a while. They were actually connected via a primitive network to a centralized 10MB hard disk. Learning assembly language and tinkering with the boot loaders on those things was fun, I must admit.

    [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...
    [Corion]: I already showed you the simple regex to match the last part of a string without a comma in it
    [Tux]: Corion++ hippo++
    [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
