Maybe you can think of your capture problem in a different way then. Most likely, you want everything after the last "path separator" up until the double quotes:

TEXT:\s+".*?[\\/]([^\\/"]+)"

The filename can contain everything except a path separator (\ or /) and double quotes, and must be followed by double quotes.

    somehow it is not working for me or am i doing something wrong :( used it like this  .*TEXT:\s+".*?[\/]([\/"]+)" as \\ was not recognized and for my input TEXT: "C:\temp\test äbc.txt" there were no matches found
      You're missing the negation ^ in the character class. Also, you're using forward slashes in the regex, but backslashes in the string. Moreover, I'm not sure the ? is needed.
      #! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use utf8; my $input = 'TEXT: "C:\temp\test äbc.txt"'; print $input =~ /.*TEXT:\s+".*[\\]([^\\"]+)"/; # ~ ~ ~ ~
      map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
