in reply to Double-duty commas

If trailing commas (on each line) would not an issue this might work for what you are doing:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; $_ = 'foo:a,bar:a,b,c,baz:d,faa:this,is,great'; my @array = m/(\w+:(?:(?>\w+,?)+)(?!:))/g; print $_,$/ for @array; __END__ foo:a, bar:a,b,c, baz:d, faa:this,is,great

update: Re: Double-duty commas is much more elegant

[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
[Lady_Aleena]: Now I will see if my perl-fu is as bad as I think it is.
[shmem]: ah, geany uses its own idea of tags. Ah well...
