in reply to OT: Wash hands after computer use.

Sometimes its not just the keyboards either. The most disgusting computers I have ever seen were in the ER area of a local hospital (where I used to work as backup to the helldesk). That said of course, some of the helpdesk techs at my current company (health insurance) are constantly complaining (with good reason) about dirty keyboards, at people's desks. Recommendation would also be to keep a pump jar (or something of that nature) of "waterless" hand sanitizer around as well.

Computers can be filthy and disgusting (and thats not even getting into the pr0n :-)

    I worked for a newspaper, and the newsroom computers were absolutely FILTHY. The first thing I would have to do is spend a couple of minutes santizing the keyboards and mice. It was only that department, the rest of the place, as outdated as the computers were, the users still kept them clean. Good advice.

[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
