Thanks for your reply!

A quick question dealing with the internal workings of what you wrote:

I understand that the split function can take any expression as its element then operate on the scalar, but what would be the more nuanced differences, particularly with memory usage and processing speed, if any, between using split and a general pattern match?

Thanks!

    You can measure the speed of your code with the time command. Or use Time::HiRes. Or Benchmark. See also Devel::Size and Devel::NYTProf.

    And don't forget to try Super Search. I'm sure that you will find many examples that use time, Benchmark, Time::HiRes, Devel::Size and Devel::NYTProf.
