in reply to split but not consumed

Use a capture in your regex
print "[$_]\n" for split /(foo)/, 'this foo is foo ... ey'; __output__ [this ] [foo] [ is ] [foo] [ ... ey]
Also, split expects a delimiter then a string (and optionally a limit), so passing the result of one split to another can result in unexpected behaviour. See. the split docs for more info on its usage.
