The quantifier actually makes it match every group; however, it only stores the last match in $1, and thus that's what you see in your return. See Extracting matches in perlretut. If you want to extract an arbitrary number of digits sandwiched between decimal points, you can grab them all, and then split the result. /((?:\d+\.)+)/g; split /(?<=\.)/,$1;

Alternatively,
[i]n list context, //g returns a list of matched groupings, or if there are no groupings, a list of matches to the whole regexp
(see Global matching in perlretut) so you could try
my @res = /(?<=\.)\d+\./g;

 [Corion]: thezip: If you want to open vim and can live with opening a second console window, use start "The results" vim.exe c:\path\to\logfile .log [thezip]: Ooops... I lied. I guess Cygwin is back. I'll just do a tail -f instead. Better. Sorry for the noise. [Corion]: Once more, I'm looking for a sane client-side framework, but I guess these don't exist. Everything I look at either uses a weirdo home-grown templating language (like Angular in all its incarnations) or uses weirdo Javascript incarnations (like ... [Corion]: ... Inferno.js, which uses ES2015) or uses some horrible amount of Javascript infrastructure before you can even render a single file. [Corion]: I'd really like to create a dynamic frontend for my Google Keep clone, but so far, all the templating solutions seem to bring their own template language or require me to hand-code everything in (their own flavour of) Javascript.
