in reply to Printing Last Element of a line using perl memory?

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.

    Might just be style but I'd make the trailing whitespace removal a bit more specific ("\W" to "\s"):

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

[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, did you even look at the subs?
[james28909]: yes
[Lady_Aleena]: And you see how the first two are vastly different than the third, right?
