in reply to Regular Expression for MAC Address

Are you trying to extract the address or just check for a match?

To check for a match:

/^([0-9a-f]{2}([:-]|$)){6}$/i
To extract the address:
@nums = split /[:-]/, $mac;
To match and extract an address whole, from a line containting other text:
/((?:[0-9a-f]{2}[:-]){5}[0-9a-f]{2})/i
