in reply to Split this string

Is there a reason for not using the following?
@array = split /\s/, $string, 2;
This will only split on the first whitespace and will ignore any other whitespace. I.E. you'll only get at most two elements from the split.

[Cosmic37]: ta erix - this szabo geezer is pretty cool methinks and he writes about undef but I cannot see instructions for redefining the record separator after having undefined it
[Corion]: $/ = "wahtever";
[Corion]: (it's a magic variable)
[karlgoethebier]: BarApp: whoami
[Cosmic37]: ok fankyou - I was wondering about that but thought there might be a redefine command or something; peachy
[Lotus1]: Cosmic37 if you undef $/ in a local context to a block it won't affect the global version after the block finishes
[Lotus1]: or you can just do local $/ in a block
