One way would be :

$subject="http://www.spied.co.nz/thinmailer.cgi"; $subject=~ s/.*\/([^\/]*)$/$1/; print $subject

What this does is return the last block of code that does not contain a backslash, from the last backslash to to the end of line.

[sierpinski]: I've never seen $#$var before.
[LanX]: $list cops be an array ref
[LanX]: could
[LanX]: $#array gives the length
[LanX]: no sorry ...
[sierpinski]: so that would just be deferencing it...
[LanX]: the last index!
[LanX]: yes
[sierpinski]: yeah I guess $list is a reference.. yeah
[sierpinski]: why is it the last index and not the first? because the length of the array becomes the index?
