in reply to How regex works in array mode?

The first value is just the first value of @lines. The rest are return values of the match -- which returns each subpattern matched by a set of () in list context. If you want only the first one returned, get rid off all the capturing parens except the outer ones.

    Hmm.. How will I get rid all the capturing parens? Sorry for the noob question. still learning this whole regex thing...
      How will I get rid all the capturing parens?
      An easy way, one that should also speed up your pattern, make it more understandable, and saves typing, is to replace
      Of course, you could also use the Regexp::Common module: but be aware, unlike your pattern, the one in Regexp::Common rejects invalid IP addresses.
        I already replace it and the output is:

        but it doesn't print the "ip:" Is it possible to print the next value in the array? Thanks

        or is this output possible?

        ip: ip:
