in reply to Pattern Match/Trim Variables.

"MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.XXX" and remove ".XXX" that's it. This directly translates to perl:

s{^ ( #capture \d{2} #MM / \d{2} #DD / \d{4} #YYYY \s+ \d{2} #HH : \d{2} #MM : \d{2} #SS ) #stop capturing \. \d{3} #XXX $} {$1}x #replace by captured

Have you read perlrequick and perlre?

    OK after taking time and looking at what you said has greatly helped... I began to think about how the code works and looked at your information and it worked great. Thank you...

LanX it reeks.
[Your Mother]: You know what they say, the reeky wheel gets the best price at cheese market.
[Eily]: well I had to google translate that
[Eily]: let me inform you that the Dutch reek translate into the Czech páchnout
[Eily]: very useful default translation :P
[Eily]: BTW LanX, you should try typing a few random chars at the beginning of each message. This will prevent expansion :P
[LanX]: qwiud you sthink so?
