SIMPLE MATCHING PROBLEM

SIMPLE MATCHING PROBLEM

SIMPLE MATCHING PROBLEM

(OP)
I need to match the first value of a list which looks like string = string/value. So I use the simple code below:

  if(/(?:^input)s*(.*)=(.*)/)               
  {
     $value1 = $1;                          
     $value2 = $2;                          
  }

However, some of the variables in the list have more than on e value associated with them,

ie string = 1,2,3

I want to only use the first value given and reject the following numbers and commas. So, I would be left with $value1 = string and $value2 = 1.

Any ideas?

Thanks a million

RE: SIMPLE MATCHING PROBLEM

Hi Gordon,

Try


if(/^(.*)\s*=\s*(.*$))               
  {
     $value1 = $1;                          
     $value2 = $2;
     $value2 = $` if $value2=~/,/;                         
  }
