in reply to split question

split may not be so hot for this, especially behind an =~ operator... .
I'd suggest using a regex for this, something similar to :

my $inLine= "RPC, rpc #001b, (1987)"; $inLine=~/\((\d+)\)/; print $1

or, if you really wanna use split,

my $inLine= "RPC, rpc #001b, (1987)"; ($itm, $date)= split /[()]/, $inLine; print $date;

but I'd shy away from that, personally.

    Or if he really wants the "remainder":
    my $inLine= "RPC, rpc #001b, (1987)"; $inLine =~ /([^(]+)\((\d+)\)/; my ($remainder, $date) = ($1, $2);
    .. assuming $inline is the only line of data...
