    Yes, you answered the question correctly. Unfortunately, it was the wrong question. (That's my fault, not yours.)

    I should have added: the filename can have _one or more_ digit groups separated by periods in the middle. I want to extract them ALL!

    So, for example:

    ActionLogs.1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.xml

    Should yield

    0 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 9

    I thought the g would do that, but I guess not.

      One way to do it.

      DB<1> $_ = 'ActionLogs.1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.xml' DB<2> x split ' ', tr/.[a-zA-Z]/ /dr 0 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 9 DB<3>

      Update: The brackets are unnecessary; tr/.a-zA-Z/ /dr works just as well.
