Matching a keyword, value and optional comma delimited valuesby brainpan (Monk)
|on Dec 22, 2000 at 01:21 UTC||Need Help??|
brainpan has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to match a string like the following:
keyword = value, optional1, optional2, optional3
where only keyword and value are required, and there are zero or more optional parameters.
So far all I've been able to come up with is
The above regex works, but it seems like I should be able to have $3 return without commas in it. Is there a way to do this w/out resorting to using something like join(' ', split(/,/, $3)) to process the results of the regex?
