Thank, this is what I've been looking for!

It's not extremely pretty, but it should scale nicely for the general case of needing the result of a regex string extraction as a right-hand-side value.

PS: The regex suggested by tobyink above can make the single-line case much more readable: /(\d+)/g

    The advantage of mine is that it actually enforces format, which may or may not be of concern. I also like that you expect two values and you get two values; a little less slight of hand for maintenance. But I do appreciate the elegance of his choice of indices.

    Also be aware you'll need to initialize @totals = (0,0) so that the index -1 doesn't map to your first term. tobyink does it, but didn't really emphasize its importance.
