in reply to extract file name from path

We can probably assume the pattern will always start with a / (since that's part of the path) and end with some sort of .ext:
my $line = 'root 30145 1 0 Jan30 ? 00:09:01 /root/java/app/java_app_1R --javaproc'; if ($line =~ m|/([^/]*?)\.[a-z0-9]+|) { print "$1\n"; }

    I think that you need to add the underscore ('_') to the character class in your regex.

    Update: I read too quickly. Reading again your regex, no, there is no need to add the underscore, since this character class is aimed at matching the final "java" extension.
