in thread Problems with regex grouping

To avoid throwing stuff in $1 when you don't need to, there is a great feature called clustering in REs with the (?:stuff here) stuff :). Just change
/<a href="(mailto:)?([^"]*)">([^<"]*)<\/a>/g
to

/<a href="(?:mailto:)?([^"]*)">([^<"]*)<\/a>/g

And that way nothing will be put in $1.

You may also want to consider chomping  $2 and $3 because a newline could get in there somewhere and cause some trouble.

Hope I helped out. :):):) Later

$_.=($=+(6<<1));print(chr(my$a=$_));$^H=$_+$_;$_=$^H; print chr($_-39); # Easy but its ok.

[shmem]: in the french alpes, at the end of a gravel road, we had a beer at a hut - and heard an enduro coming up.
[shmem]: not by the road, but from there below where you wouldn't want to walk.
[shmem]: the biker stopped the machine at the table and took off his helmet.
[shmem]: long white hair, long beard the same, then he proceeded to get off the bike
