Nice but I did want to bust all the date values out to separate elements of the @res array. Your non capturing braces though give me the clue I think to fix it properly, but I still can't quite get it:

@res = $_ =~/(\d{4}-\d\d-\d\d).*dates processed: ((:?\d{4}-\d\d-\d\d,? + ?)*)/ # still captures last result twice # input # 2009-02-02 06:12:57,500 dates processed: 2009-01-31, 2009-01-29, 200 +9-01-30 # output # 2009-02-02, 2009-01-31, 2009-01-29, 2009-01-30, 2009-01-30

Update

Oeps, I am not splitting them with the above either, fooled myself because my debug testing printed the list out with a join ", ", doh!

Cheers,
R.

[Corion]: Hehe - $work is a place where we have lots of (money) accounts, and lots of journals where every transaction is recorded. But our HR system where the accounts of hours worked and vacation days taken are stored, there is no real account of who changed ...
[Corion]: ... that balance, and when. And it seems to me that they somehow really messed up the database since the start of the year and have been frantically adding and subtracting numbers from the totals, but without trace ;)
