Arturo is right -- I don't see how anything is getting assigned to $project, since the match does not succeed at all for the initial example.

Trying to match: client.project.subproject where:

  • Client and project are manditory. Subproject is optional but, there could be more than one.
  • Client, project and subproject could contain, letters, numbers, _, -, or \&

Update:Actually your regex ... works well. Thank you.

Arturo's regex will include both your project and all sub-projects in $2. If that's okay, fine. If not, do it like this:

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