Using a regular expression along isn't necessarily what you want.

Remember: Perl is more than just regular expressions :)

$str = '/a/b/c/d/e/abc00000'; $end = (split '/', $str)[-1]; # pull the last element split() returns print "we wanted '$end'";
$"=$,,$_=q>|\p4<6 8p<M/_|<('=> .q>.<4-KI<l|2$<6%s!<qn#F<>;$, .=pack'N*',"@{[unpack'C*',$_] }"for split/</;$_=$,,y[A-Z a-z] {}cd;print lc
