Excellent. I wonder if PM should have an "Advocacy" or "Success stories" category... (or would that fall under "Cool uses..."?)

I'd certainly be interested in hearing how folks successfully lobbied to use Perl at work, or taught it to non-perlers, or received kudos for perlifying something :-)

A quick SuperSearch on "advocacy" and/or "success stories" turned up some interesting things :-)

[ovedpo15]: consider the following format of strings: some_data-doesn't- matter,value. how I get the value with regex? it should be after the last comma (last string)
[Corion]: Text::CSV_XS for all your CSV file parsing needs. Other than that, what problems do you have with perlre, and capturing everything after the comma? Also, index and substr would also work.
[choroba]: my ($value) = $string =~ /.*,(.*)/
[choroba]: The .* at the beginning matches the longest possible substring, so it eats any previous commas
[choroba]: But for CSV, use appropriate modules
