in reply to search for '\' in perl

please read perlintro, Modern Perl and/or one of the other tutorials. you're doing wrong almost everything what could possibly go wrong =)

you are not using warnings and strict.
the element in @List will contain the string "C:SernameSources".
you are trying to use $_ but $arrchar is the variable you want to do the matching on.
by saying $_ = /.../ you are assigning to $_. you have to say $arrchar =~ /\\/

[hippo]: Try it and see. Your computer won't explode.
[Corion]: length will tell you the length of a string.
[Corion]: But if you are parsing CSV, again, let me point to Text::CSV_XS, which you should use instead
[hippo]: +1 for Text::CSV_XS
[ovedpo15]: Im not allowed to use additional modules, so I can't use it. looking for a simple regex to do this task though..
[Corion]: Ah, so this is homework? Then most likely, you should review your course material closer. It would greatly surprise me if the course material wouldn't mention the topics that will be used in the homework...
[Corion]: I already showed you the simple regex to match the last part of a string without a comma in it
[Tux]: Corion++ hippo++
[ovedpo15]: it isn't homework. its a module I use at work. The process to add additional module isn't worth it. p.s never heard a university course which teach perl
