I suspect split would be your best choice-

# split my ($key, $string1) = split /=/, $_, 2; print "$key, $string1\n";

Though there are other ways-

#re 1 /^TITLE=(.*)/; my $string2 = $1 || ''; print "$string2\n"; #re 2 (my $string3 = $_) =~ s/TITLE=//; print "$string3\n"; # substr my $string4 = substr($_, 6); print "$string4\n";

Just as examples. Which method you choose will depend on what else is going on in your program and what the most general case of your expression is. If it is *always* TITLE="some string" I might use substr. If it was (for example) "some text in upper followed by an equals followed by some string ending in a numeric" *and* I had to ignore other lines that include "=" I might use an regular expression.

my $chainsaw = 'Perl';

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
