in reply to Separating substrings from a main string

my $string=qq(> abcd1234 abcd abcd >xyz123 xyz); $string =~s/[\s\n]+//g; #squash out the whitespace and newlines my @f=split(/[\>]/,$string; # CAVEAT: just wrote the off the top of my head...
Give that a whirl.

    this works, but only for the first instance. As in, @f is >abcd1234, but the correct output should be >abcd1234 >xyz123 Would it be more convenient if $string was an array?

      I gave you a template. If you have other requirements please engage your creativity and modify the template to suit you. Here's one way:

      $ cat splitter.pl use strict; use Data::Dumper; my $foo=qq(> abcd1234 abcd abcd >xyz123 xyz); $foo =~ s/\n//g; my @f = split(/[\>]/,$foo); $_ = '>' . $_ foreach @f; print Dumper(\@f); $ perl splitter.pl $VAR1 = [ '>', '> abcd1234abcd abcd ', '>xyz123 xyz' ];
