    Im sorry, i meant are the regex automatically captured to the scalars, if not what do i need to do to capture them into $1, $2 etc
      $1, $2, $3 and so on are what Perl populates captures to. However, some of us use a syntax that allows for named captures. If you read the man page for perlre all will become clear.

    also the space between the characters is variable, it is not just one space, the file is such, could you tell me a regex for that please
      \s # one whitespace character \s+ # one or more whitespace characters \s* # zero or more whitespace characters \s{5} # exactly five whitespace characters \s{3,5} # between 3 and 5 whitespace characters
      package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

        You forgot
            \s{3,}   # 3 or more whitespace characters

      That's a bit of information that should have been visible in your sample data.

      If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!
