Well yes I believe using (.*) would be better than the alpha-numeric check of (\w*) simply because these values may have non-alpha-numeric characters in them at some time and would fail the pattern match.

Ex: Untested

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; while (<DATA>) { if (/^(Managed Node)(.*)/) { my @value = split(/\=/, $2); print de_space($value[0]),"\n"; print de_space($value[1]),"\n"; }elsif (/^(.*\=.*)/) { my @data = split(/\=/, $1); print de_space($data[0])." \= ".de_space($data[1]),"\n"; } } sub de_space { my $object = shift; $object =~ s/ *$//; $object =~ s/^ *//; return $object; } __DATA__ Managed Node XYZ123 = MN Type = Combo Rim = Planner
Well there is a way to extract and isolate everything you wanted but I do not know how you want to use the info when you have it so I just printed it to STDOUT.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
