( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Another hint is use the following, which I think is more readable :-)

my $dn = 'corpid=xxxxxx,ou=people,o=corp'; my ($ou) = $dn =~ /ou=(.*?),/; print "ou = $ou\n";

From perldoc perlre:

Sometimes minimal matching can help a lot. Imagine youd like +to match everything between "foo" and "bar". Initially, you write somet +hing like this: $_ = "The food is under the bar in the barn."; if ( /foo(.*)bar/ ) { print "got <$1>\n"; } Which perhaps unexpectedly yields: got <d is under the bar in the > Thats because ".*" was greedy, so you get everything between t +he first "foo" and the last "bar". Here its more effective to use mini +mal matching to make sure you get the text between a "foo" and the +first "bar" thereafter. if ( /foo(.*?)bar/ ) { print "got <$1>\n" } got <d is under the >
