    That's a bit wordy, and you're using multiple regular expressions. If you make your regular expression a little more complex, you can do it like this:

    my $url = ""; my $numbers = $url; $numbers =~ s#^.*(\d+)[^/]*$#$1#; print $numbers;


    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
