I do not think that regex will work if you have trailling whitespace in your input data (which there appears to be in your example above). To deal with that, try something like

m/(\w+)\W*$/;

instead and see how you get on.

    [atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
    [atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
    [atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
