Probably you meant this.
push @a, ('a b c'=~/(\w) /g)[1]; print "@a";
You need () to capture something into the array. You need the switch /g if you want to put every match into an array, not just the first match (hence for the index [$i] to work).

[marinersk]: Corion This DBA wants to smack others who like putting whitespace in column names.
[marinersk]: s/smack/whap/;
[talexb]: Wow, what hilariously bad form.
[SuicideJunkie]: Just wait; someday soon, you'll be given a DB with unicode emojis in the column names.
[Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
[Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
[marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
