Fair enough. :) I'll see your improvement and raise you this:

use strict; use warnings; my @testStrings = qw{ abc. bnnn. this.that. }; foreach my $testString ( @testStrings ) { my @parts = split m{\.}, (scalar reverse $testString), 5; my $rest = scalar reverse $parts[4]; my $digits = join q{.}, map{ scalar reverse $_ } reverse @parts[0..3]; print qq{$rest -- $digits\n}; }

If the digits could also be > 10, yours will reverse them (like the this.that in this example is 12, yours would print 21).

    Good catch with the reversed digits. I'm peeved with myself because I've done a similar thing before and should have remembered. Corrected code.

    use strict; use warnings; my @testStrings = qw{ abc. bnnn. this.that. }; foreach my $testString ( @testStrings ) { my( $rest, $digits ) = map { scalar reverse( $_->[ 4 ] ), join q{.}, reverse map { $_ = reverse } @$_[ 0 .. 3 ] } map { [ split m{\.}, $_, 5 ] } scalar reverse $testString; print qq{$rest -- $digits\n}; }

    And output.

    abc -- bnnn -- this.that -- --
