in thread Removing delimiters


Why do two splits, when one would do?

my ($first, $second) = split /::/, $readline, 3;
or more simply
my (@fields) = split /::/, $readline;

    Agreed, but the original post asked for either the first or the second; so I assumed that was all he wanted... In fact, if you don't want to use the list assignment you could do it also like this:
    my $first = ( split /::/, $readline, 2 )[ 0 ];
    Many, many ways of doing the same... And how I love it ;-)
