# Find the mark. $str =~ /_{70}/ and substr($str, 0, $+[0], ''); # Replace everything up to right after # the match with the empty string.

See perltoc if you don't know which perldoc to read!

    I would actually recommend starting with perldoc perl, not perltoc.

      Both documents are great, but I get the feeling perltoc is a far less known document, so I prefer to spread that instead. perltoc is right to the target if you're looking for documentation, just like perlfunc is when looking for functions.

      (Reading "See perldoc perl" might also feel like the ultimate RTFM slap.)
