in reply to how to remove everything before last slash in perl?

Another approach, if you really want to use a regex, would be to capture just that part that you're interested in:

my $somestring = "y:/home/lib/directory/piano_book"; ($somestring) = $somestring =~ m#([^/]+)$#; print $somestring; __END__ piano_book

Update: or just to show that always TIMTOWTDI:

my $somestring = "y:/home/lib/directory/piano_book"; my $idx = rindex($somestring, "/"); $somestring = substr($somestring, $idx+1); print $somestring;

    More than one way?

    my $filename = (split m{/} => $full_path)[-1];

    I agree however that File::Basename is way better, as it also deals with filesystems other than Unix-like that use a forward slash.
