ImpalaSS has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am sure this is really simple, but i cant figure out a way to do this fast.
What i have are names, such as:
Only, i have about 1200 of them, all variable lenghts. I need a way to extract the number within the ()'s from everyone? I tired the substr() method, but that starts from the beginning, or i need to know the lenght of the total string. Any ideas?
PS (if there is a way to also get out the 4 digit number (0002 for yeadon) and add it to the adove simply, that would also help
THanks a million
