I was just going to write that... I use File::Basename all the time for filename splitting. Hasn't failed me yet and heres how you do your bit.
use strict; use File::Basename; my $file = '/ftp/dest/id.ext'; my ($name, $path, $suffix); my @suffixes = ('.ext'); # Extra extensions can be added to the list. ($name, $path, $suffix) = fileparse($file, @suffixes);
Coffee, KitKat, and a new script to write. It's gonna be a good day....

    Ah, beutiful. I saw File::Spec (and use it), but I missed File::Basename.
