steves is right. I use split's LIMIT argument from time to time. It's quite handy.

This illustration prints each element on separate line, showing the nulls:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $item1 = "1,2,3,4,5"; my $item2 = "a,b,c,,"; my @split1 = split( /,/, $item1, 5); my @split2 = split( /,/, $item2, 5); # better yet, to set the size of the array at run-time... # my @split2 = split( /,/, $item2, ($#split1 + 1)); print "item1 has " . ( $#split1 + 1) ." elements:\n"; foreach(@split1){ print "'$_'\n"; } print "\nitem2 has " . ( $#split2 + 1) ." elements\n"; foreach(@split2){ print "'$_'\n"; }

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
