Done playing army man, now back to looking for work.

First encounter with Perl: 2010, in theoretical chemistry, to avoid using awk and sed (although I did not code much, only a couple of print instructions in pre-existing code).

First real Perl challenge: statistical text analysis. Analyzing large chunks of English text from really old to modern).

Currently doing the O'reilly Perl certification in hopes of finding a job after the army.

[ovedpo15]: it isn't homework. its a module I use at work. The process to add additional module isn't worth it. p.s never heard a university course which teach perl
[marto]: there are many, to this day.
[ovedpo15]: @Corion Yes I use the regex you showed me. its very good regex. although now i need to know that substring unit that comma
marto mad corrections to one around 18 months ago
[ovedpo15]: my code checks the value after that comma, if it isn't valid it will remove it. so I would like to remove the substring after that comma meaning getting the string before comma.
[hippo]: Are you sure that Text::CSV_XS isn't already installed at your work? It's such a useful module that it might well be there.
[marto]: pointing out the advantages of cpan modules is well worth in, as both developer and $client/$company benefit greatly
[Tux]: $src =~ m{^(.*),(.*)$/ and $2 !~ $valid and $src = $1;
[Tux]: s,/,},
