That gives an off-by-one  $tokens value (it's actually counting the stuff "around" the tokens (update: and it requires creation of an otherwise unused array to hold most of that stuff)), but that's easy to fix:

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -MData::Dump -le "my $t = 'x'; ;; for my $line (qw( 1212123x534534534534xx4545454x232322xx 0901001x876879878787xx0909918x212245xx 1212123x534534534534xx4545454x232323xx 1212133x534534534534xx4549454x232322xx 4352342xx23232xxx345545x45454x23232xxx )) { my $tokens = my ($first, @rest) = split $t, $line, -1; $tokens -= 1; print qq{'$line': num '$t' tokens is: $tokens}; dd ($first, \@rest); } " '1212123x534534534534xx4545454x232322xx': num 'x' tokens is: 6 (1212123, [534534534534, "", 4545454, 232322, "", ""]) '0901001x876879878787xx0909918x212245xx': num 'x' tokens is: 6 ("0901001", [876879878787, "", "0909918", 212245, "", ""]) '1212123x534534534534xx4545454x232323xx': num 'x' tokens is: 6 (1212123, [534534534534, "", 4545454, 232323, "", ""]) '1212133x534534534534xx4549454x232322xx': num 'x' tokens is: 6 (1212133, [534534534534, "", 4549454, 232322, "", ""]) '4352342xx23232xxx345545x45454x23232xxx': num 'x' tokens is: 10 ( 4352342, ["", 23232, "", "", 345545, 45454, 23232, "", "", ""], )
(But I don't really see anything wrong with using good old  tr/// for counting and poor old substr for fixed-field extraction.)

Update: This gets rid of  @rest and the  $tokens -= 1; statement for all you one-liner addicts out there:
    my $tokens = (my ($first) = split $t, $line, -1) - 1;

Give a man a fish:  <%-{-{-{-<

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:

  • 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).
