in thread Death to Dot Star!

/"([^"]*)\?"/ almost works, but often, quoted strings allow escapes:

my $myvar = '"Did John say \"go home\" to Suzie?"'; $myvar =~ /"([^"]*)\?"/;
The above code will put " to Suzie" (without the quotes) in $1.

    So does yours. If you want to allow \" inside strings, you need to use something like /"((?:\\"|[^"])*)\?"/
