Well, I guess I spend about 15 minutes on your post. 15 minutes I could not use answering other questions - either here or on comp.lang.perl.misc. Testing, and then rejecting (but note you need to have decent knowledge to come up with the right test cases...) an offered solution not only takes time, it also decreases the overall percieved usefulness of this site, and the helpfulness of the community.

A question left unanswered gives only minimal damage. Wrong or incomplete answers are downright harmful.

As for Programming Perl, it writes:

If PATTERN is also omitted or is the literal space, " ", the function splits on whitespace, /\s+/, after skipping any leading whitespace.
To me, that seems to indicate Programming Perl describes exactly the behaviour I mentioned.

Title:
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.
