in reply to Regex To Remove File Extension

I know your title asks for a regex, but maybe split will do:
use strict; use warnings; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my @parts = split /\./; pop @parts; my $file_no_ext = join '.', @parts; print "file_no_ext = $file_no_ext\n"; } __DATA__ goo.doc boo.hoo.moo


file_no_ext = file_no_ext = goo file_no_ext = boo.hoo

[nysus]: What happened to the submit button? All I have is a preview button.
[erix]: perlmonks has become read-only ?
[marto]: erix unlikely, we've had posts within the last few minutes ;)
[ambrus]: nysus: make sure you enter at least two lines for the title and then preview, and read warnings the preview form prints
[davies]: There is an option (I have it set) to force preview before submission. Perhaps your option has been set (accidentally?) and you are not expecting it.
[ambrus]: sorry, I mean at least two words for the title and then preview
[ambrus]: davies: that option is the default. and it's not really "force", it just hides the button.
[marto]: yes, not reading the errors displayed has been a cause of this type of report in the past
[nysus]: Ambrus, ah. I think that was the problem. I'll try. Thanks!
