in reply to How to get only files ending with a ,<word>

You'll have to be a bit more specific on what is not working. It seems to work just fine here:

[~/tmp]$ touch foo,bar [~/tmp]$ touch baz [~/tmp]$ touch foo,baz [~/tmp]$ touch a b c [~/tmp]$ perl . foo,bar foo,baz

    Yes, you are right. What I want is this: I want the list to contain only the portion after the ,. So, using your example, I want to see bar bas and each a separate element in the list. THANKS for the help!
      Then something like:
      my @comma_extensions = map { /,(\w+)$/ ? $1 : () } @files;
      will produce what you want.
