( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I don't think O'Reilly will change the Camel's color anymore. Though you know why, I'll write it for the others who might not: this blue is used for everything Perl they do (every book about Perl or close enough, like J. Friedl "Mastering Regular Expressions").

Fido is "Programming Perl", 2nd ed., while Amelia is "Programming Perl", 3rd ed.

There seem to be a problem with the work camel as well: Fido's colophon says it's a "camel (one hump dromedary)", while Amelia's colophon says exactly the opposite with "dromedary (one hump camel)". More inside jokes?

    [ovedpo15]: another question about regex. if I have a string like this: "a/b/,c/d/e,5" I would like to remove the string after the last comma so the output will be "a/b/,c/d/e" how to do so?
    [Corion]: ovedpo15: You could split on comma, and then join everything together, except the last part. Or you could match and make sure that the last part has no comma, like qr!,[^,]+$!, or you could use rindex.
    [ovedpo15]: But I don't know the length of the string. will it still work?
    [ovedpo15]: The only thing I know is that there is a comma at the end and a value after that
    [hippo]: Try it and see. Your computer won't explode.
    [Corion]: length will tell you the length of a string.
    [Corion]: But if you are parsing CSV, again, let me point to Text::CSV_XS, which you should use instead
