in reply to some regex help

Would this do the trick?

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use Data::Dumper; my %hash; for (<DATA>) { $hash{$1} = $2 if /Managed Code\s+(\S+)\s*=\s*(\S+)/; } print Dumper \%hash; __DATA__ Managed Node XYZ123 = MN Type = Combo Rim = Planner

would like to seem profound to the crowd strive for obscurity.

    I think your solution might be the best approach. There shouldn't be any spaces in the variables, so \S+ should catch everything I would want. Great.
      Well remember now that "-" and "_" are not alpha_numeric characters and are used quiet often in file names, directory names, variable names, subroutine names, etc..

      It is up to you how you want to implement something but don't be too nearsighted to be able to envision future possible snags. This is how you could get into trouble on larger projects.
        If you go back to the code discussed, you'll notice that the test was for \S, which matches any non-whitespace characters. Including - and _. Therefore your objection does not apply.
