in thread The Lighter Side of Perl Culture (Part IV): Golf

So you see his recent scintillating PUGS coding frenzy is nothing compared to what he is truly capable of.

*smacks forehead* Of course! Why didn't I see it before?!? Implementing a completely new language that is a superset of all other languages (other than LISP, of course) is obviously easier than golfing! *wanders off to implement ... something!*

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

[ovedpo15]: it isn't homework. its a module I use at work. The process to add additional module isn't worth it. p.s never heard a university course which teach perl
[marto]: there are many, to this day.
[ovedpo15]: @Corion Yes I use the regex you showed me. its very good regex. although now i need to know that substring unit that comma
marto mad corrections to one around 18 months ago
[ovedpo15]: my code checks the value after that comma, if it isn't valid it will remove it. so I would like to remove the substring after that comma meaning getting the string before comma.
[hippo]: Are you sure that Text::CSV_XS isn't already installed at your work? It's such a useful module that it might well be there.
[marto]: pointing out the advantages of cpan modules is well worth in, as both developer and $client/$company benefit greatly
[Tux]: $src =~ m{^(.*),(.*)$/ and $2 !~ $valid and $src = $1;
[Tux]: s,/,},
