in reply to split string by comma

TIMTOWTDI, albeit, a less than entirely satisfactory way, requiring another step beyond what's here:

#!/usr/bin/perl use Modern::Perl; use Data::Dumper; # 947251 my $string = '1945,"4,399.00",938,1/10/2012'; my @string = split /(,".*?(?=")?")/, $string; print Dumper @string; =head output $VAR1 = '1945'; $VAR2 = ',"4,399.00"'; # note the leading commas retained and must be + reprocessed $VAR3 = ',938,1/10/2012'; # see =cut

See the examples in split beginning at "If the PATTERN contains parentheses, additional list elements ...."
