I believe you're running into some *special* cases when using a double-quoted literal and the pipe symbol. Normally the pipe symbol would be used for ORing your pattern. "i|A" would split on the characters i or A. When you want the pattern to match the pipe symbol, you would need to escape it with a backslash "\|" - however in this case when you double-quote and backslash, it is not escaped -- you need to single quote and backslash. I normally opt to use a regex as the PATTERN in split -- to me it's more readaable:

my( $first, $second ) = split /\|/, $string;
but that's just me.

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.
