( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The sample code you have given only contains one element in the array. Is that what you really meant?

The following code should work to get rid of any whitespace characters (tab, newline, form feed, literal space, carraige return) in the elements of your array:
foreach (@test){ s/\s+//g; }
Good luck,
Kris

    [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
    [hippo]: +1 for Text::CSV_XS
    [ovedpo15]: Im not allowed to use additional modules, so I can't use it. looking for a simple regex to do this task though..
    [Corion]: Ah, so this is homework? Then most likely, you should review your course material closer. It would greatly surprise me if the course material wouldn't mention the topics that will be used in the homework...
    [Corion]: I already showed you the simple regex to match the last part of a string without a comma in it
    [Tux]: Corion++ hippo++
