in reply to split and join

just wondering if u had

$line="Bart Lisa Maggie Marge Homer blah blah"; @simpsons=split(/\s+/, $line);

what i wanted is to split so as to get

@simpsons = {"Bart", "Lisa", "Maggie", "Marge", "Homer blah blah"}

notice the last part i want it all attached. Assume i dont know how many "blah"s follow after "Homer".

Edit: g0n - code tags & formatting
