Re: Removing data from a string with Regexby jwest (Friar)

Instead of using substitution, you might try something like this:
The first line will take all the characters starting from the beginning of $from that aren't '@' and capture them to the special variable $1. Then, reassign $from to the value of $1.
To do this with substitution, you could try:
which would substitute the '@' and anything that followed with nothing.
Hope this helps!
