chaskins has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have a string I need to split up and store each word as a new variable. I've tries using the 'split' command, but the problem here is that the white spaces vary in size. Does anyone know how I could do this? Here is an example of the string;
Pid    DenyMode   R/W        Oplock           Name
Thanks Chris
