( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You might want to consider changing some of your examples so that they don't lie on edge cases (that way it's more obvious what's happening). For example...

while (<DATA>) { print if 2 .. 3; }

...might be more instructive as...

while (<DATA>) { print if 2 .. 4; }

Likewise for ...

while (<DATA>) { print if 1 .. /end/; }

...and...

while (<DATA>) { print if 2 .. /end/; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.

    [Corion]: Text::CSV_XS for all your CSV file parsing needs. Other than that, what problems do you have with perlre, and capturing everything after the comma? Also, index and substr would also work.
    [choroba]: my ($value) = $string =~ /.*,(.*)/
    [choroba]: The .* at the beginning matches the longest possible substring, so it eats any previous commas
    [choroba]: But for CSV, use appropriate modules
