please use <code> tags around your code.

> Is there any easy way to get it?

No, not what you intend with "easy"!

Use a regex or split or substr to isolate what you wanted from the full path


DB<106> $head="/tmp/";$tail="/foo/file" => "/foo/file" DB<107> $path= <$head*$tail> => "/tmp/bla/foo/file" DB<108> ($middle) = $path =~ /^\Q$head\E(.*)\Q$tail\E$/ => "bla"

Easy enough! (?)


FWIW a one liner:

DB<109> ($middle) = <$head*$tail> =~ /^\Q$head\E(.*)\Q$tail\E$/ => "bla"

added quotemeta


Not sure if I misunderstood your question or if you phrasing is just fuzzy. What are folder names inside dir2 ?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
