in reply to accessing a part of a string

You want everything but a part of the string? You could play with this and alter it as needed:

my $string = 'some/very/varied_length/string'; my $subs = substr( $string, 0, length($string) - 6 ); say $subs;
Don't forget to add the OFFSET portion of substr.

    substr( $string, 0, length($string) - 6 );

    can also be written as

    substr( $string, 0, -6 );
