in reply to [SOLVED]Unable to split $ARGV variable. Can it be done?
..so that I can get the bare host name 'google.com'
um, google.com is not a hostname, it's a domain name.
Also, you start your example with 'www.google.com', and then you say you want 'google.com'
Is that correct, or was it a typo?
I'll assume you want to extract the Fully Qualified Domain Name
..appreciate some advice and whether split is the right function to use or not?
Prints:use URI::Split qw/uri_split/; my $url = 'http://www.google.com'; my ($proto, $fqdn) = uri_split($url); print "Protocol:$proto Domain:$fqdn\n";
