in reply to extract file name from a dynamic path

I would agree with the response above. Use File::Basename. It handles a lot of things you wouldn't necessarily think to include.

However, for the sake of completeness, there are a couple of ways you could do this:

( $filename ) = $tst =~ /^.*\\(.*)$/

$filename = ( split /\\/, $tst )[-1]
