I need to strip the image name from a URL string in a file. I can handle very thing but how to handle stripping the image name from the URL.  The image name is the only thing that will change in the string for each variable. Example

I would like to strip the imagename.gif

Any help is greatly appreciated

RE: strip image name from URL string

try:

$url = "http://words.com/dir/yes.txt";;
$url =~ m~.*/(\w+\.\w+$)~;
$name = $1;


or:

$name = (split('/', $url))[-1];
