in reply to splitting headache

A very quick and dirty way of doing this would be:

$line = "Pugh.Pugh.Barney.McGrew.Cuthbert.Dibble.Grub"; $line =~ s/\./\n/g; $line =~ s/([^\n]*)\n/$1./; print $line;

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I should have explained that my "Pugh.Pugh.Barney.McGrew.Cuthbert.Dibble.Grub" string was just an example of a typical string that might occur. The 'word.groupings' could actually come anywhere, not just at the start, so this method also won't work for me. Thanks again though.
