Hi kcott,
OK, that got a bit of a chuckle as /3$/ was really intended as a non-solution to highlight the lack of information provided in the question...

Sorry, I misunderstood your write up. But I kind of see a solution in it, that was why I mentioned it.
Thinking if what the OP has is a file that contain say

abcd_efgh-1.2.3 abcd_efgh-1.2.3-hjik-3.4.5.tar.gz
then simply doing this:
while (<DATA>){ print $_ if /3$/; }
prints abcd_efgh-1.2.3, and thanks to if /3$/; of course using ONLY these OP strings. It could be a different thing if there are other strings ending with "3".
All that been said on the assumption that, that was what was intended by the OP.

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