I'm thinking you don't need a beefy regex if that's all you want to do. How about something like this instead:
my $string = ' asdfasdfasdfasdfasdf'; my $numbers = shift @{[split ' ', $string]}; my @numbers = split '\.', $numbers; use Data::Dumper; print Dumper(@numbers) if $numbers =~ /^[\d.]+$/;

EDIT: Whoops, sorry moritz - I confess to only skimming your answer and didn't notice that you had already suggested using split. Apologies!
