Hi packetstormer,
".. I can't figure out how to get the rest of a string after it has been matched!.."
To start with, I will suggest you give good attention to the wisdom given by ww and davido

You can also re-write your script like so to have what you want I suppose:

use warnings; use strict; my $file = "TEST SHOW S01E01"; if ( $file =~ m/(.*?)(\d.+?)$/ ) { # modified line my $show = $1; print "Show name: ", $show, $/, "others: ", $2, $/; }
Using your "$2", you can capture the rest of the string for usage.
Hope this helps.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
