in reply to split based upon string

Also read the documentation for the split function. You can pass a regex or a string as the delimiter.

my @parts = split 'DELIMITING_TEXT', $entire_string;

    Just keep in mind that using single quotes around the pattern (instead of /.../) does not make it a plain string — it's still a regex.  Although this is not relevant here, it might make a difference in other cases:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -l my $s = 'xABCxACxABBCxAB*Cx'; print join(' - ', split('AB*C', $s)); # x - x - x - xAB*Cx
