Both you and DamnDirtyApe have a .* preceeding the =. Why?
print $string =~ /=(.*)/
will do fine.

    will do fine.

    But not the same. Their versions grab everything after the last =, your version grabs evertyhing after the first one.
    I think your solution is better (and I'm sure it's a lot more efficient), but we can't know for sure without more information.

    $\ = "\n"; for ('title=foo' ,'title=foo=bar') { print "-> $_"; print /.*=(.*)/; print /=(.*)/; }

    - Yes, I reinvent wheels.

      Eh, no. Only *one* of their versions grabs everything after the last, the other grabs everything after the first. The problem however didn't specify what should happen if there are multiple = characters present.
