in reply to Grepping out strings

Thanks, i've kind of used a combination of just about every approach suggested and I think it has put me on the right track now.

I also have to contend with .co.uk address and any other kind of domain and protocol other than http, so it's going to be a bit of a hack I think to get this to work exactly as I want it to, but thanks for the help this far.

I don't suppose anybody knows which module has the effect of giving me just the domain out of a URL?

So for example if I have.

http://www.majestic.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ReferrerEntryPoint%3FaffiliateId%3D1206%26redirect%3DContentView

I just want to get http://www.majestic.co.uk/.

But it could also be in the form.

http://www.chilloutdrink.com&sa=l&ai=B1O33J-sAQtOwG7vORJGm4OQDg

So I want to use a module that will take all different permutations of urls into account. I know in PHP you can use basename(), any suggestions as to a Perl solution? Just can't quite remember the module!</p

Thanks, Tom
